The land is healed : ban.garay! : for a cappella choir SATB / Paul Stanhope ; text by Steve Hawke.
by Paul Stanhope (2014)
This movement for a cappella choir is drawn from the dramatic cantata "Jandamarra - Sing for the Country". The piece tells of a moment of triumph for the Bunuba people as Jandamarra sings the Snake Spirit Yilimbirri Unggud back to his spring. This is a sign of the country being healed through the power of song. The healing of the land, the power of song and respect for culture are all strong thematic threads explored throughout the cantata and are brought into focus in this movement. It is both reflective and celebratory in tone.
