Hallelujah Handel

One of the Classical Kids series. The basic format for these is some kind of narrative with music from the featured composer interwoven with the text (sometimes in the background, sometimes in the foreground). The story here is Handel and someone called Caterina reminiscing about an orphan called Thomas who, when they meet him, won't talk but will only sing.

Not as good as "Beethoven lives upstairs" in the same series (which you can buy here, along with other children's classical music) - it's a little bit overacted and the story isn't as compelling - but there's some good music on here and the story is diverting enough. Kept Isabelle amused for an hour in the car.
