Variations on 'Three Blind Mice'

Written in 1956-7 and first printed in 'Guitar Review' (No.25). The music consists of short variations on the well-known nursery rhyme, written in the style of different composers. The music is preceded by a long article by Duarte, An Important Discovery, and an amusing line drawing of an imaginary lighthouse by Vladimir Bobri. The dedication reads: "To Jack Duarte, honorable keeper of the East Hackney Lighthouse. V. Bobri".
