Rain Dream is a highly imaginative choral piece for SSAA choir and piano. In it a young child who lives in the dry central Australian outback and has never seen rain dreams of what it would like to be in a thunderstorm. The work eventually becomes a sort of rain dance with chanting of “Wandjina”, an Australian Aboriginal rain spirit. Commissioned by Gondwana Voices and winner of the Gondwana Voices Composition Competition.

On The Night Train sets the scene of a train dashing through the Australian bush at dusk, as described by Henry Lawson’s graceful poetry.The emptiness of the Australian outback is represented by long, sustained pitches in the opening and closing sections of the work, above which a simple, folk-like melody is sung. This melody is also used throughout a rhythmic contrasting section where the singers create the impression of a moving train with “scat-like” nonsense syllables and whispered vocal effects.

Commissioned by The St Peters’ Lutheran Chorale, performed by Gondwana Chorale

A lovely setting of this beloved text by Mary Frye, which speaks comfort as it were, beyond the grave. For unaccompanied SATB choir, written for Graeme Morton and the National Youth Choir of Australia. Highly recommended.
