We have joined the Paul Winter Consort in the release of a cassette version of the acclaimed audio of the story by Jean Giono. The original music was composed and is performed by the Paul Winter consort, and the text is narrated by Robert J. Lurtsema, host of Morning Pro Musica.The hero of the story, Elzard Bouffier, spent his life planting one hundred acorns a day in a desolate, barren section of Provence in the south of France. The result was a total transformation of the landscape-from one devoid of life, with miserable, contentious inhabitants, to one filled with the scent of flowers, the songs of birds, and fresh, flowing water.

This is such an inspiring story! We loved this so much that my drama group has decided to encorporate it into the play we are writing!
