Hi to you all. It's very hard to believe we are now up to October! Again, I hope you and your friends and families are keeping well. I have just added a setting of the Australian poet Mary Hannay Foott's work "Where The Pelican Builds" to the SA, SSA and TBB sections of the website. The poem was first published in The Bulletin magazine on 12 March 1881, and later in the poet's collection "Where the Pelican Builds and Other Poems" (1885). Apparently the poem was inspired by the story of two brothers, Cornelius and Albert Prout, who set off in 1877 to explore land west of Queensland towards the South Australian/Northern Territory border, never to be heard of again. "Where the Pelican Builds" is viewed as a place that people can never find, being shrouded in mystery. This is a great song for developing your choir's diction and story-telling capabilities.

I've also added an SA version of Rainbows, originally a piece written for unison and piano. I love the words of this piece, written by Dinny O'Brien, as they're so lyrical.
