For mezzo soprano and piano
This song was commissioned by Ian Loughran for performance by soprano Sophie Morris (accompanied by the composer) in The 2016 Fringe Festival, Dunedin. It is a setting of two connected poems by Dunedin-based writer Sue Wootton, comparing the beauty of a hummingbird with a sinister imitation, a flying drone. Although two poems are used, this should be considered as one song, and performed without a break.
Dedicated to John Psathas
