Following Tom Lehrer’s decision in 2020 to release almost 100 of his songs into the public domain (for anyone to perform and adapt without permission), The Queen’s Six find themselves unable to resist …

'Lehrer […] has just announced that he is surrendering the rights to his songs so that everyone can help themselves to his ‘catchy and savage musical satire’ without fear of breaching copyright. His timing, as ever, is perfect, because what the world needs urgently is a strong dose of Lehrer.'
