About

These two pieces have no text; melodic fragments, harmonies and progressions are explored solely through hummed sounds and sung syllables. Both pieces also feature solos for the first soprano. Composed for Wellington group Baroque Voices and premiered in Wellington at the end of 1995; the solos on this occasion were sung by Pepe Becker. They received a subsequent performance at the 18th Conference of the Asian Composers' League, held in Manila in January 1997.
