This work was written as part of a composer-in-residence program at All Saint's Anglican College, Perth. The text, written by the composer, explores the beauty of the outdoors: the West Coast ocean breezes, the clear skies at night, and how these things of beauty meant so much more to the early ocean-going explorers of the West Australian Coast. The melody is strophic and simple, almost folksong-like, with a faster contrasting middle section. The Mixed-voice version would suit a high school or tertiary-level ensemble.
Instrumentation: SAB choir, piano.
Duration: 4 min.
Difficulty: Medium — Long sustained phrases, rhythmically challenging middle section. Would suit a high school or tertiary-level ensemble
Commission note: Written for Annette Kerkovius and All Saints Anglican College, Bull Creek, WA, as part of their 2008 composer-in-residence project.
First performance: by All Saints’ Singers — 2008. St Andrew's Uniting Church, Perth
