Released on CD Rhapsody by Gary Daverne for accordion with NZ Symphony Orchestra backing.
Gary Daverne originally composed the Three Songs, as choral works with piano accompaniment. Choral group, Viva Voce, recorded them with full orchestral accompaniment by the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra.
Many years later, they were especially arranged as accordion solos for American accordionist, Mary Tokarski and recorded using the original orchestral backing tracks.
The names of the three songs were changed to avoid any confusion.
I will Light a Fire to Fireside Fantasies
2. The Day of Aranga to the The Awakening
Man That is Born of Woman to The Journey
