The text for 'Christ the King' is taken from two poems by James K. Baxter: 'Song to the Father' and 'Song to the Lord God on a Spring Morning'. The title of the piece comes from the feast day of October 25th in the church calendar, and the plainsong for this day is used in the opening and ending of the work. 'Christ the King' was written for the Sydney Chamber Choir.
