The Convict's Daughter- Songs of Australia The "Ballad of the Convict’s Daughter" is a song by Horace Keats to a poem by Corporal Sheila Sibley. The convict’s daughter represents Australia for whom the singer’s lover gave his life in war. It is in a segment of three pieces about war, to mark Armistice Day on Sunday 11th November. The other two pieces in this segment are: "Anzac Threnody" by Miriam Hyde, and a world premier performance of "Moons as Big as Mountains" by Brennan Keats - composed to words from letters from his brother Russel, who wrote them from HMAS Canberra and who lost his life when she was sunk. Brennan Keats is hoping to attend the concert. The remainder of the programme is music by Australian composers to texts by (mostly) Australian poets. The songs are representative of music of Australia - the convict’s daughter.
