This was written out of an admiration for the music of diverse peoples, both Maori and Pakeha, and especially as a tribute to the haunting Nga Iwi E, a song by Hirini Melbourne which celebrates the unity of Pacific (and ultimately all) peoples. The song merges in and out of a tapestry consisting of fragments of Bach, Beethoven, Maori waiata and others (Keith Jarrett and Jonathan Crayford can both be felt in there too), all structured in a style inspired by Bach's choral preludes. The underlying melody is a famous song written at the turn of the century by the Maori Princess, Te Rangi Pai.
