Sadie Harrison's Three Jennys for solo Oboe. Performing score.
Three Jennys was written especially for Jenny Porcas who gave the work its first performance on 7 June 2014 at the Purbeck Arts Week Festival in St. Mary's Church, Swanage.
The three miniature movements are entitled Spinning Jenny (based on the Lancashire folksong ?Poverty Knock' associated with the textile industry of the nineteenth century), Creeping Jenny (Lysimachia nummelaria) which twists andturns like the plant itself, and Jenny Wren, heard here in virtuoso voice.
Three Jennys is dedicated to Jenny with affection.
