There are also three songs - The Finn Woman, Waiting For The Silver-Sailed Moon and Bullies - performed by National Youth Chamber Orchestra Of Scotland and RSNO Junior Chorus, as well as instrumental tracks.

"The package is just the ticket for young children who like a good tale well told." (The Scotsman)

"This is a treat for everyone to enjoy, and the most wonderful part is that the music grows on you, the more you hear it. The story also comes through more clearly when you get to know the music, so I recommend you listen to it several times over a few weeks, to turn it into a family favourite. It provides a glorious experience for children and grown ups alike." (Bachtrack.com)
