A song about Alfred Russel Wallace!

Sreela Banerjee of the Pyr Project wrote to tell me about a brilliant song the project has recently produced about Wallace. It is called 'Wallace was a very busy man' - and it is sung by the Charles Matthews Singers, who are children (largely) from Mickleton Primary School, in Gloucestershire. To hear it click HERE and then on "The Wallace song" (or simply CLICK HERE). The words can be read HERE and the music HERE. There are some nice resources for kids about Wallace, the Wallace Line, and Wallace's world, on the project's "Resources" page.

This must be the first song ever written about Wallace - the only other I know which even mentions him is this one: http://wallacefund.info/mr-darwin-mr-wallace-mr-matthew-song-mr-haines
