A setting of words from Charles Darwin's On The Origin Of Species in which he describes, in loving detail, the characteristics of different types of pigeons. The music is energetic, highly rhythmical and occasionally comic. The rapidly changing time signatures make this piece more suitable for experienced and confident choirs.
