Former Alto from Manchester Cathedral Owen Wynn, who lives close by, asked me to write a piece for his choir
(The Owen Wynn Chorale), together with a local children's choir and various instruments
for the Sale Festival in 2000.
I decided to use the text of Old Mother Hubbard (plus one additional, rather more modern, verse)
There were two performances that year, but some parts were unfortunately a little inaccurate,
so I created a video incorporating the original performance and a few regions featuring an electronic preview by Mike Roberts.
I was pleased to note that this musical "jigsaw puzzle" worked quite well:
