These songs and poems were composed during the Relief Voyage of the British National Antarctic Expedition of 1901-1904. The music was composed by Lieut. G.S. Doorly and the lyrics by Chief Engineer Morrison and other officers, including Ernest Shackleton. The CD is a result of collaboration by New Zealand musicians and actors to mark the centenary of the voyage of the "Morning" to relieve Captain Scott and company aboard the "Discovery" in 1902. The royalties for this publication are being divided between the Dundee Heritage Trust's Antartic 100 "Discovery" Restoration Fund for work on the restoration of "Discovery", and the New Zealand Antarctic Heritage Trust for preservation work on the expedition's hut and its contents.
