You Were Never My Country

By Michael Hugh Dixon

Regular price $30.00 Sale

Soprano, horn and piano
Inspired by a poem that Chryssy Tintner wrote in November 2015 - with the sentiment that some of us sense: that we only borrow a connection to the land for awhile. This seems to contrast with the experience of many Indigeneous people, whose connection runs very deep (to put it simplistically). There are other layers to the poem as well as can be sensed on listening or reading.
Composed 2017
