Tell me about it...The vocalists have been going crazy with this one so
I'd better work on keeping up. First, most of that is for alto sax
which I have very little training, and second, the rhythms are very
"different" for me and I'd be totally lost if it weren't for a skirmish
I had with stage band last year.

I think it was produced before and they cut it before release. I kind
of prefer the Munchkin's theme song--especially when my little brother
and sister join in from the other room. I'd like to see them do THAT
for Poulenc!

Thanks again for the advice,
