Programme Note

Rain is an iconic poem by Hone Tuwhare, describing beautifully a feature of the weather but also subtly ruminating on death. The setting is quiet and lyrical, with an optional part for a rainmaker (to be played by the singer).

The original setting for baritone and piano was written for Matt Landreth, and recorded by him. The song was subsequently scored for orchestra and recorded by Matt Landreth and the Auckland Philharmonia. Duration: 6 minutes approx.
