"In a world where mutability is the one thing on which we can rely, certain names carry with them an aura of comforting constancy: Banks (Music Publications) is a treasured example in the world of music, and their Eboracum Choral Series continues to be a wonderfully reliable resource".

HINE E HINE, New SSA/SSAA arrangements by Gwyn Arch


Voice: SSA + PIANO

Arranger: ARCH GWYN



RECORDING: Performed by Seagrave Singers, Conducted by Sue Peel

Hine e Hine is a Maori lullaby that first appeared in 1907. It remains to this day one of New Zealand's favourite songs. Although it is often described as a folksong it in fact a composition by a leading Maori contralto who initially studied singing in Australia, then came to London in 1901 for further voice training. Christened Fanny Rose Porter, she invented for herself the stage name of Princess Te Rangi Pai, made her début in Liverpool that year and thereafter was in great demand for recital and oratorio work. She returned to New Zealand in 1905 and made many tours, receiving particular acclaim for Hine e Hine which she sang at nearly every concert.

The song's popularity has received a significant boost in recent years through the recordings of two of New Zealand's singing stars Dame Kiri Te Kanawa and Hayley Westenra.
