Clement Jewitt began composing following a life review induced by simultaneous crises in his personal and professional lives in his forties.
He wished to put to deeper use his lifetime involvement in music making choral singing, recorder playing and consort direction focussed on the baroque, guitar playing and teaching focussed on 19th and 20th C music, and tuba playing largely in brass bands.
