    Reviews

    "As a teacher who enjoys using new technology in new and exciting ways, I was excited when Orpheus was given to me for review. The cover looks exciting, and the addition of Johnny Morris as narrator is inspired. The Musical is based around the legend of 'Orpheus in the Underworld' (but not the Offenbach version!), and can, as pointed out, be simply staged for children of most ages.

    The whole resource is on one CD, and uses Acrobat reader and Microsoft Media Player version 7. This means that the resource can be developed as the teacher wishes, and cuts out a lot of extraneous paper that often accompanies such projects.

    The songs are wonderful, and include a great deal of imaginative use of the resources."
