This Old Man

Traditional English Folk Song

Originally Performed by The King's Singers

The origins of this song are obscure. The earliest extant record is a version noted in Anne Gilchrist's Journal of the English Folk Dance and Song Society (1937), learnt from her Welsh nurse in the 1870s under the title "Jack Jintle".

King's Singers : Choral Library Vol 1

This collection brings together some of the more popular pieces sung by The King's Singers over the past years. With the possible exception of "This Old Man" and "Mariri's Wedding", all the pieces have a gentle and rather wistful quality that perhaps reflects more reserved side of the British character in both the arrangers and the singers.

Songlist: This Old Man, The Gift To Be Simple, Irish Lullaby, The Three Ravens, Time After Time, Mairi's Wedding, Lavender's Blue, The Long Day Closes, Phillis is My Only Joy, Charm Me Asleep

King's Singers : Kid's Stuff

The King Singer's and Dame Judi Dench tell the tales we all know and love. Embrace the charm of this rare treat made for children of all ages! The Teddy Bear's Picnic and Humpty Dumpty sitting on a wall, The merry soul, Old King Cole and Duke of York, the Grandest of them all. This old man, a dog and a bone. "Over the Hills and Far Away" for days and days alone. Walking on air or submerged in a "Yellow Submarine", or with an owl and a pussycat on a ship of pea green. Boys and girls and blackbirds four and twenty, they all diddle diddle in lavender blue fields of plenty. Wendell, the sunburned worm, an old woman's fate with a fly, the frog he went a-courtin while we all stand together, together you and I.

Songlist: Teddy Bear's Picnicon, Humpty Dumpty - Old King Cole - The Grand Old Duke Of York, This Old Man, Over The Hills And Far Away, King John's Christmas, The Riddle Song, Walking In The Air, Yellow Submarine, The Owl And The Pussycat, Here We Go Down The Line, Lavender's Blue, Wendell The Worm, I Know an Old Woman, Frog Went a-Courtin' - We All Stand Together

Seattle Children's Chorus : Songs From the Heart : 1 CD : Kris Mason

Seattle Children's Chorus : Songs From the Heart

The Seattle Children's Chorus was founded in 1988 by artistic director Kris Mason; whose purpose was to promote a high level of vocal and choral training for young musicians in the Seattle area. The approximately 175 choristers perform formal concerts throughout the year, and the Performing Chorus has toured annually throughout the Northwest, Canada and the West Coast. Other tours have taken them to Britain, and they have appeared at Carnegie Hall. These 21 songs mostly feature the Performing Chorus, with the exception of "The Little Birch Tree," "Simple Gifts" and "This Old Man," which features the Advanced Ensemble, who also sing "All That Hath Life and Breath Praise Ye the Lord." Some other favorites are "Festival Sanctus," "Bist du bei mir," "The Father's Love," "Who Can Sail," "Jabberwocky," the poignant "In Flanders Fields," "Psalm 100," "Agnus Dei," "Dance With Me," "Kalinka" and "The Rhythm of Life." There is light piano accompaniment on most tunes, but the soaring, innocent voices of the children are what "Songs from the Heart" is all about. Beautiful and moving, from first cut to the last!

Songlist: Festival Sanctus, Over My Head, Bist du bei mir, Duet From Cantata #15, The Father's Love, Who Can Sail, Jabberwocky, In Flanders Fields, Cantate Domino, The Little Birch Tree, Simple Gifts, This Old Man, Jesus Christ, the Apple Tree, All That Hath Life and Breath Praise Ye the Lord, Psalm 100, Art Thou Troubled, Agnus Dei, Dance With Me, Kalinka, The Storm is Passing Over, The Rhythm of Life
