About

5 short pieces with a NZ flavour. The speaker plays the role of a rather serious teacher who does not see the funny side of what he is saying. In the rather wild movement "Mussels" he changes role to shout the Maori text like a "Karakia".


Difficulty note

Recommended by the composer for the Big Sing competition


Contents note

Text note

"Seashore Life" by R. K. Dell (Reed 1981) "The Natural World of the Maori" by Margaret Orbell (Bateman 1985). The fragments of texts are so small that no copyright law is infringed.
