Eight settings of Small Pictures of Dunedin, by Dunedin poet, Peter Olds.
The text of these songs has a distinctly Dunedin flavour, with references to known places in the city. Olds provides moody and sometimes humorous texts that gave the composer the opportunity to produce a variety of styles and atmospheres. One gently satirical song is unaccompanied, with each phrase adding a single word to the previous one.
The songs vary in length between a minute and just over two. The last song requires the pianist to whistle towards the end.
