This album received the Tui Classical Album of the Year 2006!
'This recording aspires to present works from over three decades of New Zealand composition which draw upon the words of New Zealand poets and takes their inspiration from the landscape of Aotearoa (New Zealand) ... The choir engages with the diversity of musical styles and the uniqueness of the colours and textures on the pages of these scores. These are New Zealand's voices, sung by Tower Voices New Zealand.' (Notes from CD booklet.)
Tower Voices New Zealand conductor Karen Grylls received the 2006 KBB Citation for Services to New Zealand Music awarded by the Composers Association of New Zealand.
