This work was written in a few days while the composer was attending the 1987 National Summer School in Choral Conducting at Nelson. It was tailored to the needs of the particular tutor group, and needed to be quickly rehearsed - hence the relatively easy SAB choral parts in the original voicing. The first performance was conducted by the composer in one of the school's twilight concerts.
A subsequent version for SSA was made a week or so later and used at another summer school by the composer. The work is a setting of a short poem by American poet Emily Dickinson (1831-1886), and is dedicated the Australian conductor and music educator Faye Dumont.
