Hot Cross Buns – How to Play on the Glockenspiel / Xylophone

“Hot Cross Buns” is an English nursery rhyme, probably as old as those spiced buns, “crossed” at the top according to the song.  Street sellers of the 19th century shouted loudly to invite people to buy some, so the song probably imitates their cry.

This traditional sweet contains, apart from spices, pieces of fruits and raisins. You can sing the song while preparing some! – we’re sure that they will be more delicious! Find the recipe here.
