A setting of the first verse of 'Araluen'.
Commissioned in 2000 for performance by St Peter's Chorale, directed by Graeme Morton. Scored for a cappella SATB choir. Duration: 5 minutes.

Composer's note: Modulations in music often suggest to me ideas of 'journeying' or of 'changing gears' and I have used a series of modulations throughout my setting of 'Araluen'. I also like to use syncopated rhythms for their ability to energise and move the music along.
