Dear Norman I am currently the Church Music Coordinator at St Andrew's Church on The Terrace in Wellington. Our interim minister Jim Cunningham came across your hymn 'Pohutukawa Promise' in November and showed it to me with a view to incorporating it into the Advent services. I started composing tunes for hymns in 2009 and felt I would like to try writing a tune for your lovely poem. I have done so now and it will be sung by a soprano soloist at our Carols service on 21st December. We will acknowledge our use of it with CCLI as is our norm.
I wondered if you would be interested to receive a copy of my setting or I could send you a recording of me singing it, or I could do both.
