Composer’s Note

In 2001, Dr Richard Gill OAM, in association with Alfred Publishing Co., Inc. (Australia), requested that I compose some music for inclusion in the “Alfred New Voices Choral Series”, a collection of music aimed especially at school-aged choristers in the primary (K-6) environment.

My piece, Lula, is scored for treble voices and piano, and appears as a Grade 5 work in the series.

It is a lively little song which has a sense of melodrama about it!

It draws its text from the two syllables of its title (loo-lah).

Accompanied by a colourful piano part, the choristers are encouraged to sing with a confident, bright tone of voice.

Matthew Orlovich,
Composer.
