This brass octet with its somewhat dense texture of waiata-like fragments, is inspired by the spatial as well as the dynamic and energetic qualities of the mountain. The Maori title may translate as 'The Mountain Called Wharepapa', which is the original name for Mount Arthur in the Nelson district, a significant mountain in my childhood landscape. This piece is dedicated to the memory of my father, Tas McKee.
To T.J.M. (the composer's father)
Performed by Victoria Brass Ensemble conducted by John Young
