*NEW* Six of Edward Lear's Nonsense poems are set here for advanced Quartet with Narrator. The essential character of each limerick is captured in half a dozen short movements, featuring a brute of a bee, a mean harpist, a sentimental waltzing bluebottle, a lady with a fly-away bonnet, a man dying of boredom, and a very itchy flea! Also available for a larger ensemble with narration from within the group.
This highly entertaining and unusual set of pieces is dedicated to Atarah Ben-Tovim.
