Composed over 9 days in 2003, the idea of writing a piece of music with such a title developed while writing, over a ten year period, an opera based on the life and hardships of Wesleyan and Anglican missionaries in the South Pacific. The setting for this opera is mainly in the northern region of New Zealand in the 1830s, leading up to the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi in 1840. The main theme based on the expression Tribal Ritual and Pacific Island drum rhythms (Tongan) are the major features in the structure of the composition.
