When the heart

For SA Children's Choir + Piano

At Gondwana National Choral School, I was particularly inspired by the incredible work that they do with their children’s choirs.  So, on the advice of Paul Holley, I set my hand to writing a choral piece for primary school aged children.  As it has done in the past, Leunig’s beautiful poetry provided ample inspiration.

Having Mark O'Leary of the Young Voices of Melbourne offer to premiere it at their 25th Anniversary Concert was incredible!  It's the first premiere of one of my pieces that I actually couldn't make it to - being in Adelaide at the time - so I am very grateful that this recording was made!  Hearing these children sing my music fills me with such joy.  I hope it does so for you as well.
