Cathedrals of flame : three pieces for solo piano / May Howlett.
by May Howlett (2009)
In summer, the Australian sears the landscape tinder dry, the cicada sings, and the bush becomes a Cathedral of Flames. A Salute to the Sun, and an elegy for those who fought and those who suffered loss in the flames.
