Solo voice

For solo mezzo-soprano

Text by the composer in te reo Māori

The first performance was given by mezzo-soprano Ana Good at the Waitaha Matariki celebration in the Dunedin Art Gallery in June 2008.

About the work

Matariki was written for a double celebration — to mark Matariki, the Māori mid-winter festival, and Ana’s birthday.
