A funny way to get students into the Classical and Romantic Composers. The group includes the following:
Beethoven, Mozart, Brahms, Liszt, Elgar, Schubert,
Chopin, Handel, Haydn, Rachmaninov, Verdi,
Wagner, Debussy, Claude Achille Debussy,
Christoph Willibald Gluck, Carl Maria von Weber,
Giacomo Meyerbeer, Modest Mussorgsky, and
Johann Nepomuk Hummel
All done by Michael Palin and the Monty Python group back in the 1980's.
Intro: Right ho, darling. Yeh, be home
(spoken) about 8:30. No, no I'll go on a
Bike.
Beethoven's gone, but his music lives on
And Mozart don't go shopping no more
You'll never meet Liszt or Brahms again
And Elgar doesn't answer the door

Schubert and Chopin used to chuckle and laugh
Whilst composing a long symphony
But one hundred and fifty years later
There's very little of them left to see

They're decomposing composers
There's nothing much anyone can do
You can still hear Beethoven
But Beethoven cannot hear you

Handel and Hayden and Rachmaninov
Enjoyed a nice drink with their meal
But nowadays, no one will serve them
And their gravy is left to congeal

Verdi and Wagner delighted the crowds
With their highly original sound
The pianos they played are still working
But they're both six feet underground

They're decomposing composers
There's less of them every year
You can say what you like to Debussy
But there's not much of him left to hear

Claude Achille Debussy, died, 1918
Christophe Willebald Gluck, died, 1787
Carl Maria von Weber
Not at all well, 1825, died, 1826

Giacomo Meyerbeer
Still alive, 1863, not still alive, 1864
Modeste Mussorgsky,1880
Going to parties, no fun anymore, 1881

Johan Nepomuk Hummel
Chatting away nineteen to the dozen
With his mates down the pub
Every evening, 1836, 1837, nothing
