Five Nursery Rhymes for Kittens

I selected these five poems from Paul Gallico's book Honorable Cat (which amazon dot com informs me is out of print) and set them to music as a fun song cycle for my voice teacher. In order of performance, they are

Sheet music is available if the songs interest you. E-mail me about it by using the AOL thingy below. If you would like to have a recording of yourself singing any of the songs posted here, that can be arranged. A lot of people stop by to listen -- well, you're here, aren't you? The best way to get the lyrics, of course, is to buy the book. Search for the title at amazon dot com and buy a used copy.

The MP3 and RealAudio versions of the above songs have a synthesized voice singing the text; the QuickTime and MIDI versions have a synthesized oboe playing the melody instead. If you'd like to know how I synthesized the voice, click here. It's a Mac thing.

Here's a silly alphabet song I used to sing to my kitty (named Amanda):
An apology to the Canadians: I don't say "zed" at the end. Sorry.

Here's a duet I wrote for two of my favorite kitties, Tomás and Missy:

Here's a duet I wrote for Lulu (another of my favorite kitties) and Rusty (one of my favorite doggies):

Here's a trio I wrote for Bruno, another of my favorite doggies. If you've ever seen "Homeward Bound", Bruno is like Chance, and Rusty is like Shadow.
