    We'll hear the New London Children's Choir today, singing songs about insects and birds by the composer Richard Rodney Bennett. They're all taken from the album 'Pigs Could Fly', available on Naxos Records. We'll also hear music by the American composer Leroy Anderson who wrote a duet for an orchestra and a typewriter, and we'll music by Ravel written for Sleeping Beauty and Tom Thumb.

    We'll sail the high seas with music written for pirates, and we'll make an underwater exploration to meet some of the creatures who live there. We'll also hear music written for a king, queen, a prince and a princess, and we'll hear about a composer who wrote music for many royal families, Domenico Scarlatti.
