Hope this might be comforting to anyone dealing with lockdown or any hardship; an excerpt of my Australian Song Cycle, set to be performed by the amazing @sydneychamberchoir in late June before being postponed by COVID, seemingly indefinitely for now 💔
This is an a cappella choral movement but obviously on piano here. The words to be sung here are Henry Lawson’s:
“Who now shall wear the cheerful face
In times when things are slackest?
And who shall whistle round the place
When Fortune frowns her blackest?
Oh, may the showers in torrents fall,
And all the tanks run over;
And may the grass grow green and tall
In pathways of the drover” (at Brisbane, QLD Australia)
