The Three Kings Jonathan Dove
The text is by the English poet and novelist Dorothy L Sayers.
It achieves a surprising emotional power and mystery by portraying the youngest king, the nearest to childhood, as the saddest, bringing a gift of myrrh which anticipates Christ’s passion and death ; it is the oldest king, nearest to the grave, who brings the golden toys.
Dove has captured this surprise in the music – the first two verses are simple and ballad like, while the third verse suddenly opens up like a treasure chest of winking gold.

How shall we sing in a strange land ? Joseph Twist
Is set to the evocative text of Oodgeroo Nurucal’s A song of hope and combines with part of Psalm 137 How shall we sing the Lord’s song in a strange land ?
A strong sense of optimism is created through the rhythmic urgency juxtaposed with the peacefulness of sacred and secular text which in itself looks across the centuries and civilisations through the use of Latin and English text.
It was commissioned by the National Youth Choir of Australia and first performed in 2012.

Kondalilla Stephen Leek
Kondalilla is the name of a waterfall in a small remaining pocket of rainforest in South East Queensland, Australia.
In the indigeneous Dreamtime Stories of the area, Kondalilla is the spirit of the waterfall and Ouyen is the spirit of the still water.
