About

Arguably the most significant book regarding New Zealand music to arrive in 2006, this 488 page tome examines the life and music of our foremost composer, Douglas Lilburn. Endorsed by the NZ Listener as "A bloody good read" that "exposes and illuminates a huge chunk of New Zealand's cultural history through the life, personality, and music of Douglas Lilburn" (May 27, 2006), this is the first extensive biography of Lilburn and as such will be an indispensable resource for any New Zealand music enthusiast.
