Cycle of four settings of poems by Ruth Dallas, for soprano and string quartet. Composed in 1987 for soprano Susan Boland, who gave the first performance in that year with the University of Auckland string quartet. Recorded and broadcast several times the following year. The songs are always lyrical and melodic, with a certain austerity.
