Carry Us Home has been very well-received at two recent concerts in Melbourne, performed by the Firbank Chorale. They gave excellent performances at the Firbank Grammar School Choral Concert at St Andrew's Church , Brighton and then at Eisteddfod on the Bay, where they carried off second place. Many thanks to adjudicator Mark Puddy, highly regarded Australian composer and choral educator. He wrote in his comments that it was a "Great Piece!" and told the assembled choirs to "go and find more of Todd McNeal's marvellous music!".
Carry Us Home is a lyrical piece for upper voices on a World War One theme, with a beautifully-crafted text by Queensland poet Mark Svendsen. For a score sample click the link below:
