Moonlight Publishing

Moonlight Publishing was founded in 1980 to create a new kind of information books for young children. Their aim is to explain how things work and how different facts are related to one another, why the world is as it is and why people and things interact in everyday life as they do.

Product Description


An illustrated biography about Purcell's childhood and how he came to become a great composer. The accompanying CD contains recordings of some of his most famous works as well as the narration of the story.

Purcell was a court musician like his father and uncle. He also wrote music for the theatre—a mixture of instrumental pieces, songs, and dances. Children who have tried making up their own dance steps, or who can tell the difference between the sound of the violin and the viola, will find that they have much in common with Purcell.
