The Colne Edition Choral Cantata Series series

Longer accompanied choral works by Alan Bullard, suitable for choirs of all abilities.

Re-discover the magical world of Edward Lear: the table and chair who learned to walk, the melancholy reminiscences of Uncle Arly, the Sunday outing of the Broom, Shovel, Poker and Tongs, the tale of the broken-hearted Yonghy-Bonghy-Bò, and the courtship of the Owl and the Pussycat, all linked together by narrations and limericks.
Scored for SATB choir, optional narrator, optional children's choir, and either piano or brass quintet accompaniment, this accessible and enjoyable work, first performed in 2002, was an immediate success with performers and audiences alike, and is now in the repertoire of many choirs.
Duration approximately 30-35 minutes: Hire material (brass score and parts) available direct from Colne Edition
