Product details

A Chime of Wrens is an exquisite Art Song by Australian composer Sally Greenaway. Performed by soprano Jade McFaul and pianist Anthony Smith, the piece delivers a heartfelt message from afar, transcending the barriers imposed by distance against a backdrop of unpredictable and unrelenting Covid lockdowns.

"The piece was borne from the wish of Gregg and Dee McFaul," says Greenaway. "They wanted to send a musical hug across the country as a celebration of an 80th birthday milestone and a family's love for mother/grandmother Merlene Poole".

John Banister Tabb's poem embodies quiet resilience and strength through the ups and downs of life. Like a mirror on the poem, Greenaway's song is a joyful and earnest reflection, wondrously providing metaphorical wings to meaningfully celebrate Merlene's love of community, family and her faith.

One little flower still lacked a stem
So into it He breathed a song...
And suddenly, with petals strong
As wings, away it flew.

Published by: Australian Music Centre — 1 facsimile score (5p. -- A4 (portrait))

Poem by John Banister Tabb.
