Great Classical CD

"This is a really wonderful CD, especially the first musical "The Reluctant Dragon". This musical is suitable for everyone, even those without musical backgrounds. I am sure everyone will find it a truly enchanting musical. I strongly encourage everyone to get the CD."
Wonderful Fun

"The Reluctant Dragon is a silly but warm mix of musical styles that together tell the classic tale in a way that only the King's Singers could do it. It's a seasonal classic at our house! It's great to have it re-released in CD. I had to ask my sister in England to get it the first time on vinyl."
Delightful!

"I've liked the King's Singers for a while and remember hearing this version of The Reluctant Dragon years ago. I was ecstatic to find it on CD and upon receiving it, happy to find that The Wind in the Willows is just as good. I hadn't actually read The Wind in the Willows so I got a copy and read it. It is a delightful book, even for adults, if you haven't read it I reccomend it. I think this performance captures the feel of the book and the attitude of the characters very well. I also find I can't help listening to the 'Let's Whallop a Weasel' song over and over again. Great stuff.

Brother Heinrich's Christmas is okay, but it's more of a tale told than a story sung. More narration and less singing than the other two. It also feels like it's more directed at children than the other two.

Still, all in all a very good collection of music and story.
