    I'm commissioning Naomi (Naruco) to write me a piece for soprano and band but I need to give her a title... I'm stuck for one.... any suggestions? It's going to be a lively piece with a nice slow section (I hope!)

    If we get a few good ones, I will run a poll to find the favourite!

    How's about 'Outback' - which would officially refer to the some areas of barren wilderness of your home country, or unofficially because Soprano players never put 'owt back after rehearsals!

    Victoria - The Southern State

    Swan Island and Clifton Springs

    Two Australian Scenes

    Two Victorian Scenes (With either using both subtitles)

    I notice that there are also English names : Torquay, Hastings and Anglesea to name but 4 ;)

    Perhaps you could forge a connection between these antipodean versions and their home country originals?

    just my thoughts

    Botany Bay - Where Captain Cook first landed in 1770.

    Botany Bay - Lyrics Found on Yahoo search.

    Farewell to your bricks and mortar, farewell to your dirty lies
    Farewell to your gangers and gang planks
    And to hell with your overtime
    For the good ship Ragamuffin, she's lying at the quay
    For to take oul Pat with a shovel on his back
    To the shores of Botany Bay

    I'm on my way down to the quay, where the ship at anchor lays
    To command a gang of navvys, that they told me to engage
    I thought I'd drop in for a drink before I went away
    For to take a trip on an emigrant ship to the shores of Botany Bay

    Farewell to your bricks and mortar, farewell to your dirty lies
    Farewell to your gangers and gang planks
    And to hell with your overtime
    For the good ship Ragamuffin, she's lying at the quay
    For to take oul Pat with a shovel on his back
    To the shores of Botany Bay

    The boss came up this morning, he says "Well, Pat you know
    If you don't get your navvys out, I'm afraid you'll have to go"
    So I asked him for my wages and demanded all my pay
    For I told him straight, I'm going to emigrate to the shores of Botany Bay

    Farewell to your bricks and mortar, farewell to your dirty lies
    Farewell to your gangers and gang planks
    And to hell with your overtime
    For the good ship Ragamuffin, she's lying at the quay
    For to take oul Pat with a shovel on his back
    To the shores of Botany Bay

    And when I reach Australia I'll go and look for gold
    There's plenty there for the digging of, or so I have been told
    Or else I'll go back to my trade and a hundred bricks I'll lay
    Because I live for an eight hour shift on the shores of Botany Bay

    Farewell to your bricks and mortar, farewell to your dirty lies
    Farewell to your gangers and gang planks
    And to hell with your overtime
    For the good ship Ragamuffin, she's lying at the quay
    For to take oul Pat with a shovel on his back
    To the shores of Botany Bay

    Rhapsody for Soprano Cornet on an Original Theme for Digeridoo (sp?)

    On a more serious note:

    Southern Rhapsody *

    Southern Cross Rhapsody *

    Capricorn Rhapsody * (the Tropic of Capricorn crosses through the centre of Australia)

    Quantas Rhapsody * (Quantas never crashed; and neither will Fitzy)

    Up Here Downunder

    * I think Rhapsody fits because it means, among other things, an instrumental composition of national character.
