This set of five waiata (songs or chants in Maori culture) draws inspiration from the natural and spiritual worlds described in the poem Mercy by Greek-Armenian poet Olga Broumas. Like the poem, Adams’ work similarly explores themes of love, loss and transcendence. The elegant arching structures and recurring motives derived from a 12-tone row make it a fascinating work for solo flute.
