The Willow Singers: Po Atarau – Now is the Hour

May 31, 2009

Tempus is fugiting (fugitting?) faster than ever.

Here we are on the last day of May and day 31 of the tune a day challenge for New Zealand Music Month.

It’s increased my knowledge and appreciation of New Zealand music and musicians.

Since it’s good bye to music month, I’ve chosen a song of farewell: Po Atarau – Now is the Hour – sung by the Willow Singers: soprano Hannah Timms, alto Valarie Tan and baritone Issac Stone.

Congratulations to Keeping Stock and Inquiring Mind who accepted, and succeeded, in the challenge of posting a song a day and Rob who made it on nearly every day.

Their posts yesterday were:

Johnny Devlin at Keeping Stock

Greg Johnson sings Looking out on Monday at Inquiring Mind

Herbs Listen and Graham Brazier, Harry Lyon and Hammond Gamble sing Sea of Heartbreak at Rob’s.


Aunty Alice Brought Us This

May 5, 2009

Rob beat me to Pretty Girl, which he posted on Sunday,  so here’s another Hogsnort Rupert song as my contribution to day five of the New Zealand Music Month tune a day challenge.

It’s Aunty Alice Brought Us This (and because it’s a medley you get four other songs as a bonus, I didn’t recognise the second and third, the fourth is When Grand Dad Played his Piano and it finishes with Pretty Girl) :

UPDATE: Inquiring Mind takes us to Taurmaranui on the Main Trunk Line with When The Cats Been Spayed adn gives us a bonus with Po Atarau (Now is the Hour) by The Willow Singers

Keeping Stock brings us Love Hate Revenge  from The Avengers.

Rob gives us twofer Tuesday – Distant Sun  from Crowded House which comes with a long story short and Greg Johnson singing Save Yourself.
