Most popular are the highly successful Nonsense Songs
Composer and TV presenter Howard Goodall writes: ‘Bernard Hughes’ spicily engaging Nonsense Songs are delightfully quirky and mischievous, musically inventive and witty. They are tongue-in-cheek and will prove rewarding for young singing groups who are looking for something a little out of the ordinary.’
Conductors who have performed Nonsense Songs have said: “These lunatic morsels are marvellously loopy with a kind of insane logic that children appreciate immediately… Varied, entertaining and great fun to sing.’ – ‘Choirs and conductors will gain much enjoyment from learning and performing these songs’ – ‘Perfectly judged: funny and profound, and beautifully crafted.’
