The revised SOUNZwrite NCEA Level 1 Guide contains three works:
I Hope I Never , Tim Finn’s soaring ballad, was a 1980s hit for iconic Kiwi band Split Enz. The guide compares the original song with Eddie Rayner’s ENZSO orchestration, and is packed with well-written activities centered on the song, the album, the band, and the composer and arranger. The score contains the original chart and orchestration.
Helen Fisher’s Pounamu , for choir and flute or koauau , was inspired by the sparkling summer waters of Nelson. Activities cover everything from notation and improvisation exercises through to aspects of Maori and Japanese music. The SOUNZwrite CD contains two versions of the work: one with concert flute and one with koauau.
The third work in this guide, Childhood was composed by one of Aotearoa’s most influential composers: Jenny McLeod. This magical choral work comprises a series of 10 related poems about a day in the life of a small boy; joy and puzzlement, dream and reality are brought together through his eyes and ears. Students and teachers will enjoy the fun and instructional activities based on the work. The SOUNZwrite CD also includes McLeod’s Dirge for Doomsday for comparative listening.
ACCOMPANYING SCORES CAN BE PURCHASED SEPARATELY AND ARE AVAILABLE FROM SOUNZ: I Hope I Never ($12.50), Pounamu (Promethean Editions – student workbook score $7.50 or full published score $25), and Childhood (Waiteata Press – $15).
