Inspired by the sparkling waters of Tasman Bay Nelson, this choral work was originally composed with flute accompaniment, which has been substituted in performances by the Shakuhachi (traditional Japanese flute) and also the Koauau (traditional Maori flute). There are recordings of Pounamu with each of these flutes. The piece's choral texture uses Maori vowel sounds and a text which is a whakatauki (proverb) from the Waikato region.
