In 2007 Epsom Girls' Grammar School (Auckland) held a 90th anniversary weekend. As part of the weekend's celebrations a church service was held, for which I was asked to form a special reunion group of singers from my Opus choir. The choir had been part of the school's music programme from 1984 to 2003.

As a special feature of the church service this short setting of the Hosanna section of the Mass was sung - here, set in Māori. As one of the performers taking part was also a fine oboist I wrote this short work for oboe with three-part treble voices.
