Song of the Unicorn
A Merlin tale featuring academy award-winning actor Jeremy Irons. This is the medieval tale of a young queen who falls mysteriously ill.

With riddles and the unicorn's song, the children travel to the magical isle of Avalon. There, they must decide what can truly cure their mother... The music contains more than two dozen excerpts of pre-Baroque music, including traditional English songs like Greensleeves and Early One Morning, Gregorian Chant, Celtic songs, wild Medieval dance music, plus a journey into the future of music with Bach, Mozart, Beethoven and beyond.
