It is scored for two semi-choruses (SSA and SATB) with a large mixed-voice choir. The accompaniment is for piano duet and percussion. The texts are a mix of extracts from the Latin Te Deum and a 15th century text from India by Kabir. The piece was conducted by the composer at the beginning of the final concert of the 1996 Melbourne International Choral Festival.
Commissioned for the International Summer School in Choral Conducting 1993, assisted by Queen Elizabeth II Arts Council (now Creative New Zealand) and the New Zealand Composers Foundation.
