Wind Quintet with Narrator. Duration: 25-30 minutes.

Written for the Oxford based wind quintet 'The Five Winds' for a Children's Christmas concert.

First performed at the Holywell Music Rooms Oxford 1985. 16 MP3 samples of that first performance are available to listen to, and although the sound recording is poor, it conveys the essence of the piece.

A sleepy bear (bassoon), a romantic lady (cor anglais), a mad cobbler (clarinet) and a fisherman's son (piccolo), are all visited by the "Mountain Wind" (horn) of Stephen Pegg's imaginative story.
