Work Overview

The Wanderer celebrates the joy of flight and adventure. The title refers to the Wandering Albatross, great traveller of the southern skies. The vocal lines in the first section are long and interrupted, reflecting the effortless soaring of these magnificent birds. The second section consists of a canonic melody which is then layered with ostinati in Indigenous Sydney language. The words, "Wumera, and Wara-wara" are words for flight and ocean. This piece has become very popular, sung all over the world, and would suit voices of all ages.
