Do you know what an Aubrey Winter Version is?
Or a Hot Fountain Pen? Have you seen a Fiddler on the Hoof getting the Purlies while playing Pear-shaped notes? What is the Cowpat School of Music? Or the difference between a Grecian Urn Conductor and a Pudding Stirrer?
The answers to all these questions and many, many more, are to be found in this unique book. Endlessly informative and very funny, it will be a delight to anyone interested in music, whether listener or player.
