Arrangement of a traditional Maori song designed for high school performance. It has been widely performed.

Listen to performance

Tutira Mai is a traditional Maori song which has been arranged for female voices. It was written for the Rangi Ruru Chorale in 1988, and this original version was for sopranos, altos, solo flute, solo cello and piano.

The piece proved so popular, particularly with school choirs, that a second version which didn't require the solo instruments was produced. The second version has identical vocal parts to the first, but only the piano for accompaniment. Both versions last one and a half minutes.

Check out these different youtube versions of Tutira Mai, arranged by Anthony Ritchie:

Tutira Mai with flute, Argentina

Tutira Mai with gilt, Mexico

Tutira Mai - Tapiola Choir, Finland
