He has a weekly radio program distributed by PRI, and a remarkable number of compositions for washing machines, music stand flutes, taxis, carugahorns and Hoover Uprights (vaccuum cleaners). I was under the impression there was a book of madrigals. I recall one along the lines of "April is in my mistress' face" where the second line supplies the "rest" of the sentence i.e.
Line one -- "YOur teeth are like stars"
Line two -- "That come out each night"
John, doesn't "My Bonny Lass" have a line where instead of singing "fa-la-la-la-la", you sing "oo-la-la-la-la"?
Anyway, I'm sure the music is available. We used to sing the pieces in my madrigal group.
