Product details

Known earlier in her career as Kath Walker, Oodgeroo Noonuccal took her indigenous name in order to reclaim her heritage. Oodgeroo became well-known as an Aboriginal leader, advocate and speaker but above all an eloquent poet. Margaret Glendinning's poem "I hear the songs" is a tribute to Oodgeroo. It expresses a yearning to understand indigenous culture with Oodgeroo acting as a sort of medium. Glendinning was one of many students of Oodgeroo, and her poem is a fitting tribute to a truly inspiring figure.

In setting this poem for 4 part treble choir, I have attempted to portray something of the sense of yearning felt by the poet in the slow outer sections of the piece, whilst the exuberant dance-like music of the middle underlines the more energized character of birds in flight and a "quicksilver dance of stars".
