The text takes some meaning from the delights and difficulties life presents and the friendships strengthened (and in this case, music made) as a result. The use of unison in the music is a programmatic element to this idea.
Instrumentation: 2 female voices, cello.
Duration: 3 min.
Dedication note: Dedicated to Halcyon
Written for: Halcyon
This song is one of a collection of chamber works under the title Kingfisher, Songs for Halcyon. The songs were gifts from the composers to celebrate 15 years of music-making by Australia’s leading ensemble for vocal chamber music.
A fabled bird identified with the kingfisher, the halcyon had the power to calm the wind and the waves while it nested on the sea during the winter solstice. The composers took their inspiration from the word 'halcyon', each displaying their own unique voice in writing for singers and instruments. The 21 songs represent the cream of vocal composition in Australia and offer a lasting tribute to the relationships formed between Halcyon and the composers who have written for them over the years.
