Ensonglopedia of Science is a collection of 26 songs, one for each letter of the alphabet.

Here are some examples:


Ensonglopedia of Science is currently on tour throughout the UK. This website contains lyrics, videos, audio and more information about the show. The project is the brainchild of John Hinton, creator of the multi-award-winning 'Scientrilogy' of musical comedies:
