Sheet Music: Score
The Maroubra song cycle : for female voice and piano / music by Stephen Lalor ; lyrics by Libby Hathorn.
by Stephen Lalor (1990)
Libby Hathorn's lyrics evoke bitter-sweet memories of a sun-drenched life in the post-WWII beachside suburb of Maroubra in Sydney. Stephen Lalor's music sets these words in a series of vignettes ranging from hypnotic ballds to quasi-Klezmer episodes and atmospheric, operatic settings.
