DiliHow to change this usual sentence into cleft sentence?

The sentence does not lend itself very well to that kind of transformation, but the following is just about the only cleft sentence form of it that makes sense to me.

It is (the fact) that Christopher Wren died before he saw St. Paul's totally finished that is particularly sad.

You can do a pseudo-cleft version with less trouble thus:

What is particularly sad is that Christopher Wren died before he saw St. Paul's totally finished.
