While researching Douglas Lilburn's Sonatina for Clarinet and Piano at the Alexander Turnbull Library, Ben Hoadley discovered a short work for two clarinets with a note attached in Lilburn's hand indicating that it had been written in 1947 "for players of the S.O." Little else is known about Canon for Two Clarinets.
