Songs of a little Bear for string sextet (based on the Poohratorio)


This sextet (2 violins, 2 violas and 2 cellos) is based on my setting of the Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis which is, in turn, based on my oratorio in which I set a chapter of Winnie the Pooh. The are tunes and light and playful.

The oratorio itself (The Poohratorio, composed in 1977) has now been published. The melodies are entirely mine. You may be able to guess some of the characters whose leitmotifs in the oratorio are used in this setting.
