Work Overview

Throw a Heaven Around a Child, a song cycle of five songs for baritone and piano was composed in 1978 for Arthur Johnson and Bevan Crabtree. While in America on study leave in 1977, Bracanin befriended the English poet Tony Connor who wrote a poem signifying the initial awakening by his daughter Rebecca of her blossoming into early womanhood. As Tony asked for it to be set to music Bracanin decided to use his poem as the central piece in this cycle which traces the development of a female child to the stage where she leaves home to seek an independent lifestyle. The remaining four poems are by W. B. Yeats, J. Shaw Neilson and J. Wright.
