Product details

Shaving, coat-hangers and changing sheets; all part of the repetitive, yet comforting domestic rituals familiar to everyone's day yet so entrenched and considered so unremarkable, they are rarely acknowledged in conversation. It may seem odd to compose a work on such subjects, but the poinancy of the text shines strongly and the subject matter strikes a chord with many. Why not spend a few minutes acknowledging these mundane, yet essential day-to-day activities, common to all of us, and perhaps even ponder any deeper significance?

Published by: Australian Music Centre — 1 facsimile score (39p. -- A4 (portrait))

Difficulty: Advanced

Duration: 25 mins
