Haiku was originally written for female voice and prepared piano while studying composition at La Trobe University, Melbourne. It was first performed in Melbourne in 1978 with the vocal part sung by Tina Westaway, and the piano part played by the composer.
This version for youth choir is a transcription of the original 1978 version with minor alterations. The only differences from the original version are the use of vocal harmonies in some of the songs, and the arrangement of the original vocal part for high, middle and low children's voices.
