Australian Works Analysed in this Kit

 Essayist's Prayer (2015) by Nicholas Vines

Product details

This music education eKit is designed for Music of the Last 25 Years (Australian Focus), the mandatory topic of the New South Wales Higher School Certificate course, Music 2. Specifically, it provides materials for the study of a set work, An Essayist's Prayer for double chorus & orchestra.

Primary sources include a full e-score and vocal score, along with an audio recording and score video, featuring a vibrant performance by Abbotsleigh School and friends. These are accompanied by an informative teacher's guide, with a detailed rundown of the work, and a comprehensive set of activities, based on listening, musicology, performance and composition.

At just under ten minutes, An Essayist's Prayer is an entertaining, accessible example of recent musical practice. It incorporates not just contemporary elements, but also a liberal swathe of styles and techniques covered by the Preliminary course's mandatory topic, Music 1600-1900. What's more, the work's tongue-in-cheek take on writing an English essay is something every high school student can relate to, and the kit as a whole is relevant to any students studying Australian music at senior high school level.

Includes: Teacher's guide -- Activities booklet -- Activities with answers booklet -- Full score -- Vocal score -- Mp3 recording.
