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 accompanying CD contains two versions of the work: one with concert flute and one with koauau.

This revised version was adapted for study at NCEA Level 1.
