Product details

Contemporary classical music which is a tribute to the tall trees of 'Brown Barrels' which were cut down in 1993. They were the last bit of old growth forest in the Nalbaugh State Forest in south-eastern Australia. These trees were 400 years old and grew to a height of 60 metres. It took eleven people with fingers touching and their arms outstretched to encircle one of these trees.

Duration: 66 min.

Liner notes include biographical notes on composers and performers, programme notes and song texts.

Project assisted by the ACT government, Canberra School of Music and Australian National University through a Research Infrastructure Block Grant.
