CAREY BLYTON IN CAMERA
£11.99
CD / Product Number: URCD229

To many generations of children and parents, the name BLYTON has become a byword for excellence in the writing of children’s stories. Titles made famous by Enid Blyton, such as Noddy and The Famous Five have sold millions of copies throughout the world.

CAREY BLYTON has followed in the footsteps of his famous aunt and is enjoying worldwide success with his children’s nonsense poem Bananas in Pyjamas –now a multi-million dollar empire.

Carey was also a classical composer and best-known as a miniaturist. This latest CD is a compilation album issued as a “taster” to introduce Carey’s wonderful music to a whole new generation of music lovers. The CD includes his instrumental music composed for the BBC’s television series Dr.Who, music for guitar, for two pianos, for choir, for soprano and piano and also for tenor and orchestra.
