You can’t blame me for being proud of Mauri’s musical gifts, which he has spent a lifetime developing, honing, and using. Maybe I should say thankful instead of proud, since I have no basis for pride in something I had nothing to do with. I need to be careful here not to cross over into bragging, since that isn’t becoming to such a young lady of refinement. (ahem) But if your husband had his name on millions and millions of tapes and CDs worldwide, wouldn’t you think that deserved a little horn blowing?
Wee Sing’s website demonstrates the same fun produced in all of the 40 or so projects Mauri and Barry Hagen. (Read the Wee Sing history here.) We got to hang out at a wedding recently with the Wee Sing authors and illustrator (I’m still trying to forgive myself for missing the extraordinary photo op). We haven’t done a project in a while, and we miss it. (I say “we” because I’m the music engraver, the one who makes the music printable.)
But back to Mauri’s music. Here are a couple of his songs I thought you might enjoy. [to clarify, these are not Wee Sing songs; Mauri wrote them and sings them]
