About

These two songs were prompted by a forthcoming concert by Auckland choir GALS. The concert's theme was to be 'friends', and I was keen to write something for the sopranos and altos of the choir, having written for the men of the choir in past, as well as the full choir. The first of these pieces would have been intended as a male commenting on a female friend, but here takes on a slightly different intent being set for female voices. The second song is a sly little poem by English satirist Gavin Ewart about office relationships, and how they keep office life interesting - at least until the day's work ends.
