play this Anne Svendsen piece - it its a mp3 file


Moreton Bay is an arrangement for an experienced string orchestra of an Australian folk song which became popular around 1830. The ‘Percy Grainger style’ work portrays the sadness and grief that was the experience of the convicts at the penal settlement of Moreton Bay run by the notorious Captain Logan. After a slow introduction of the theme, the piece seamlessly moves in to a lighter waltz section before returning to the memories of that horrendous period of Australian history.
