The Sixth Day of Christmas was written at the invitation
of Hildy Essex, conductor and director of Australian Contemporary
Chorale, for their performances at Melbourne's
Federation Square in December, 2006. Twelve composers were each invited to set one of the 'Days' with some regard to the performance environment - outside at the Square.

Instrumentation: SATB choir.
Duration: 4 min.
On the sixth day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me
Six geese a-laying,
Five golden rings,
Four calling birds,
Three French hens,
Two turtle doves,
All I really wanted was a yellow ball
In a gravel puddle**
And a partridge in a pear tree.
**The interpolated text harkens back to my last choral setting, Dusk, with text by Chris Wallace-Crabbe (From I’m Deadly Serious (Oxford; Melbourne: Oxford University
