Thread Name: Lyr Req: The Owl and the Pussycat (Edward Lear)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Owl and pussycat
At the Elton Hayes site (well-known in Great Britain), lyrics authorship is clearly indicated as Edward Lear.
Ian McQueen wrote music for children's choir and orchestra. Stephen Owens also wrote music for childrens choir. Since Lear wrote it in 1871, there have been many vocal arrangements.
