Ka Waiata Ki a Maria

As the choir members know, we will be performing Ka Waiata Ki a Maria with the University of Michigan Chamber Choir next Tuesday. It’s a well known waiata (though I hadn’t come across it previously) and a search on Google brings up a number of recordings and other info. Here is my favourite, by Delma Rae:

It’s a solo performance (with a little backing) rather than a choral one, and it doesn’t have the variations that we’ll be doing, but it does have a lovely relaxed feel and is spot-on for the pronunciation, I think.
