About

This work is a song cycle for soprano, flute, cello and piano, based on some Lauris Edmond poems. These poems focus on some vivid moments that together create a larger resonance within the circle of life and love. The song cycle is dedicated to my daughters: Freda, Louise and Joanna. Lesley Graham commissioned 'The Wheel Turns' with financial assistance from Creative New Zealand, Arts Council of New Zealand Toi Aotearoa. Also, the work has been recorded by Atoll Ltd for the CD 'Taku Wana' (ACD203)
