The 3 Pieces for Violin and Guitar were written originally for tenor and guitar, from the cycle called Five Dunedin Songs (1996), based on poems by Bernadette Hall. In 2005 they were re-arranged for viola and guitar, for Donald Maurice and Matthew Marshall, and in 2011 for Duo Tapas. These pieces draw on jazz and folk influences. 'Song' is playful, and depicts 'Stonewoman', a well-known maternal landmark in Christchurch, while 'Tomahawk Sonnet' expresses grief for the death of the poet's father. 'Lovesong' is also grieving, but for lost love, and is jaunty and edgy in tone.
