Abstract:
This one-page draft score was composed to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of Singapore Airlines. In D major, only the melody (in a high tessitura, but limited mostly to an octave) and lyrics are notated. A tonic-dominant polarity is heard throughout the song. Lim explains that his compositions are functional and stem out of the necessity to compose for the community, thus the inherent nationalistic slant of his works.
