Work Overview

This evocative, lyrical piece with reflective piano accompaniment explores overcoming adversity or difficult times: to comfort and inspire when feeling lost or caught up in life's events.

In its original form it was scored for SA with piano accompaniment and was written as a gift for Woden Valley Youth Choir in 2008. It has been re-arranged for a capella SATB, for Luminescence Chamber Choir and for SATB with piano accompaniment for Canberra Qwire.

"If the moon goes out I will light a star, and brighten up your heart. If you're feeling down, I will raise you up and hold you close awhile."

"Through silver waves on an emerald sea, and fields of glistening sand, if your hope is lost I will find a way - I'll take us home one day."
