Baa baa Black Sheep Help Opus Details
For feedback and questions, please contact Victor Gomersall.
Baa baa black sheep is a favourite English-language nursery rhyme. The tune is very similar to that of Twinkle, twinkle little star, which is originally a French nursery tune set to the words "Ah vous dirai-je, Maman", and originating from 1761. Mozart wrote a famous set of variations on this melody. In the 1980s there was a ridiculous controversy in UK in which the rhyme was accused of being "racist" by advocates of "political correctness". Scholars have attested that this accusation is baseless.
