Q: Hi there! I read on the internet how you are responsible for the "Quiet Is" series on Disney. My daughter loves the "Sailing Boat." Where can we find it? Thanks!

A: Hello, Thank you very much for your inquiry about "A Sailing Boat." I will forward your note along to Disney. We, as composers on this series of shorts, do not own the rights to distribute copies of the song, unfortunately. So at this time, its not available on another format. I will inquire if there is any plan to release all of the songs from "Quiet Is." In the meanwhile, I do believe there is an internet channel, either a YouTube Disney Channel, or YouTube Disney Junior Channel, which would play the video over the internet. Thank you very much for your inquiry, and compliment, very best, William V. Malpede
