A Little Book of Hours draws together six pieces for the elementary pianist. Beautifully evocative and with powerful simplicity, the pieces reflect on a day in the life of Aboriginal people, journeying from the Evening Star to the Singing Sun. Perfectly encapsulating Sculthorpe's distinctive style - a style which, to many has become the authentic voice of Australia - this collection will provide a delightful introduction to his music.
