The melodies in this work are based on my unpublished 1979 setting of "The expotition to the North Pole" from A A Milne's book "Now we are six" in the Winnie the Pooh series (under the title "The Poohratorio"). Clearly the Poohratorio itself cannot yet be published due to copyright on the text, but the melodies that it inspired have led to various pieces including a Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis (Canticula Ursae Minoris) and various sextets (Songs of a little Bear) including this sextet for 2 oboes, 2 clarinets and 2 bassoonsAs suggested in the score, the ideal positioning would be to have all instruments in choir 1 on one side of the stage and all instuments in choir 2 on the other side (ie antiphonally).The pdf file contains score and partsThe sound sample is an electronic preview.

    I bought this because we meet regularly with friends who play exactly this combination of instruments. There is very little published material available for flute, oboe, 2 clarinets and 2 bassoons. We have only played it once so far but all agreed it was worth getting to know better.
