SSA choir and percussion, c.3'30

Commissioned by Gondwana Vloices. 

The title, Song for Imberombera, alludes to an Aboriginal creation story recounted by Burnum Burnum in his Aboriginal Australia (Angus & Robertson, 1988, p.16), where he refers to a Dreaming legend about the arrival of the great Earth Mother, a symbol of fertility and creator of life. Among the Gagadju people of Arnhem Land, Imberombera came from across the sea arriving on the coast with her womb full of children. She travelled far and wide, forming the hills, creeks, plants and animals, leaving behind many of her spirit children.
Composed in 1997.
