Sheet Music: Score
Letters from a black snake / music: George Palmer ; words: Ned Kelly.
by George Palmer (2007)
This song cycle was commissioned by Ernst & Young to mark the opening of a major retrospective of the works of Sidney Nolan, perhaps Australia's best-known artist, and was performed at the New South Wales State Art Gallery and the National Gallery of Victoria. The text is taken from the letters of Ned Kelly, Australia's most notorious bushranger, who was hanged in Melbourne Gaol in 1880. Nolan identified himself with Kelly and painted a series of pictures of episodes in Kelly's saga which have become icons of Australian art.
