Work Overview

"Maranoa Lullaby was collected in the Maranoa district in Southern Queensland by Dr H O Lethbridge. An arrangement of it for voice and piano, by Arthur S Loam, was published by Allan & Co, Melbourne, in the 1930s. This was later made popular by the Aboriginal tenor Harold Blair. In 2007, his 1950 recording of it was chosen by the National Film and Sound Archive as one of its 'Sounds of Australia.'
When I was a student in Melbourne, in the 1940s, I made an orchestral arrangement of the lullaby. I have since used it in several works, notably Cello Dreaming, for solo cello and strings (1998) and my choral Requiem (2004)" -- P. Sculthorpe.
