Giant of the Forest was the winner of the Australian National Choral Association (ANCA) Composition Competition - Primary School/Children's Choir Section.

The song is my tribute to a great survivor, the Centurion Tree in Tasmania. This 100 metre tall Eucalyptus regnans (Mountain Ash) is the tallest flowering plant in the world and is thought to be 500 years old. In February this year it survived the bushfires that swept through the Huon Valley.

Preview and purchase the piano/vocal score. Available for SA, SSA(A) and SATB.

Here is the SSA(A) version of Giant of the Forest beautifully performed by Young Adelaide Voices.

Here's why I do what I do…

…features my song I Am The Earth.

You can find my works for children at
50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing.
To commemorate this event, author Phil Cummings and I composed a special song-cycle. The songs trace the big moments in the human endeavour to explore space.

The world premiere of Space Race was performed by the
Adelaide Symphony Orchestra and Young Adelaide Voices in September 2019.
