This work sets a poem by New Zealand poet Ruth Gilbert. The poem is in two verses - the first having a questioning and searching tone, while the second presents the resolution. Love is at the centre of the text: for it is love that is the 'rose that will not die' and the 'house not made with hands'.
The text begins:
Find me the rose that will not die,
The tree no axe can fell,
The spring no Summer's drought shall dray,
And this last miracle...
Written for David Gordon and the choirs of Diocesan School for Girls, Auckland
Text from a poem by Ruth Gilbert
