accompaniment: piano, precussion


The Maori culture of New Zealand is noted for its chant-like singing. Here soloists introduce the traditional chant, and are then joined by the choir as the piece grows in intensity. Piano and percussion accompaniment add to the excitement and drama. The profound text gives us a peak at the culture of these people as it offers up their metaphor for living.

Hutia te rito
Hutia te rito o te harakeke
Kei hea te kōmako e kō?
Kī mai ki ahau
He aha te mea nui?
He at ate mea nui o te ao?
Māku e kī atu
He tangata! He tangata! He tangata, hī!

Translated
Pull out the shoot,
Pull out the shoot of the flax bush
Where will the bellbird sing?
Say to me
What is the greatest thing?
What is the greatest thing in this world?
I will say
The people! The people! The people!
