Sheet Music: Score
Murchitt : a daydream / music: Lawrence Whiffin ; text: William Henderson.
by Lawrence Whiffin (1997)
Based on a prose poem by William Henderson, the text is deliberately silly with comic-surreal imaginings inspiring the music in unusual situations, humour having the dominant role.
Published by: Australian Music Centre — 1 facsimile score (133p. -- A4 (portrait))
Duration: 28 min.
There are two large sections rather than two movements, each with varying tempos interpreting the moods of the text.
Includes programme note.
An experiment in post-surrealist humour.
