Notes

  • From the Preface: 'A recent seminar of Australian musicians and composers drew attention to the need of more Australian music suitable for use in schools. This collection of ballads represents a worthy contribution towards this end.'
  • 'Words and music of six songs for children'. (Source : Marcie Muir Australian Children's Books : a bibliography. Vol. 1 (1992))
