Cat in the Dark was commissioned by The North Canterbury Academy of Music for performance in their Music Quarter Festival, in Rangiora, 2008. It was written for massed children's choir in unison and 2 parts. It is a setting of a poem by NZ author Margaret Mahy. The final verse also includes a short ‘round’ in 3 parts. There are also two different instrumental accompaniments: one for piano and clarinet in B flat, and one for piano alone. The song may be transposed to suit the requirements of the choir.
