This work for choir, baritone and orchestra was composed for The Schola Cantorum (now City of Dunedin Choir) and The Dunedin Sinfonia (now Southern Sinfonia), with the assistance of a grant from Creative NZ. It is a song cycle, using ten poems especially written for the work by New Zealander Pat White. Three other poems are by Baxter, Frame and Hunt.
