Five short song settings of five nonsense poems (three anonymous, two credited), which reflects my childhood in New Zealand. In colonial countries, a love of the absurd and the enjoyment of wordplay are paramount – an inheritance from Great Britain. The genesis of this work, ‘Sylvan Catch’, was written as a student assignment in 1987. All the other songs were written on one day in September, 2006.
