I guess that leaves just L, K, and J
with fewer to choose, I like it that way
I'll take a wild guess and hope not to lose
Tunde Jegede is the name I now choose

Like a vulture I swoop down,
conjuring up verses like a clown
To the puzzle that has lasted a week
is Karl Jenkin's Requiem the answer you seek?

Oh, where is our Shapley, just when we need him?
two names have been added, can't anyone see 'em?
I'm betting Navneeth has picked the right one
My suggestion was lame, but the guessing was fun :lol:

Shapley may be floating down river in canoe,
trying to log on to BBB by laptop (who knew?)
I'm just not good at rhymes,
so pass me some beer and some limes,
'cause, incidentally, I havent' a clue! :oops:

Jenkins sounds good, and his works are many
This lull from Shap causes concern in plenty
This guesser hopes he is just out of town
And not suffering from a tree fallen down.

Karl Jenkins, indeed, is the composer I seek,
And pardon my absence, as I vacation a week,
I've traveled East for relaxation and rest,
Oh, and the Requiem is not the solution to this test.

And congratulations to you Navneeth for correctly guessing Karl Jenkins. The minute you posted that I knew it was the right one.

Thank you. :) It was tough coming up with the name, considering the fact that I had to find a living British composer whose name started from one of three (THREE!) different letters. :P :mrgreen: Thanks go to you guys for shortening the list.

Welcome back, Shap
From your week plus long nap
We have yet to unearth
The piece of such worth
Is it the song I heard on the radio
The "diamond music" named Palladio?

I never finished college,
but to the best of my knowledge,
Palladio (while an excellent choice!)
contains no part for voice.

The number of guesses we've had at this game
we're soon out of time to pick the right name.
Karl Jenkins we know, wrote a song that was sung,
Not played on a tuba, a horn or a drum.
The song we must guess is a vocal rendition
of something he wrote by his own volition.
I offer the name of a mass that he wrote;
“Armed Man” is a work that is sung with one's throat

The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace, eminated from Jenkins pen,
Composed to be played when the millenium did begin,
At the century's end it was written, performed and recorded,
thus, the honour of '20th century work, it is accorded.
And, upon Jamie, the title of 'winner' of this contest,
is bestowed, since the title he correctly guessed!

And, may I add, if I not be lacking decorum,
"Welcome" to Navneeth, who was long missed on this forum!

And a note, now that we're done, on Barfle's composer list,
the one on which Jenkins' name was most notably missed,
'tis a wonder the name of Jenkins, Wiki's British list did squelch,
but included him on the list of composers who are Welsh,
Perhaps the good and knowledgable folks who Wikipedia compile,
should be told that Wales is truly on the British Isle!

I am honored. Thank you for a fun game! I could have never guessed had it not been for Navneeth
