"Soup of the Evening, Beautiful Soup"

(sung by 12-year-old Michael Bannett)

One click HERE to listen to 12-year-old Michael Bannett's exquisite rendering of Lewis Carroll's satire in his Alice in Wonderland on the sentimental Victorian song "Star of the Evening, Beautiful Star" by James M. Sayles. And I defy you to keep from weeping along with Carroll's soulful mock turtle, who, after all, was only the "mock."
