This work for massed choir and orchestra was written for Uwe Grodd and the Manukau City Symphony Orchestra for the opening of the Genesis Theatre, TelstraClear Pacific Arts Centre, Manukau City. The piece aims to reflect both a spiritual journey, and a journey through time to a new place. It was inspired by two texts - a traditional Maori blessing, and a poem entitled The Journey written for the occasion by Tessa Stephens.
