Composer Margaret Wegener (1920 – 2020) led an extraordinary life both in the UK, where she was born, and here in New Zealand, where she settled in 2005.

A considerable body of Margaret's original compositions have been published, drawing praise from composers such as Ralph Vaughan Williams, Herbert Howells, and John Rutter.

Auckland Libraries is privileged to hold the collection of her musical life’s work and pays tribute to this remarkable woman by showcasing some of her most beautifully crafted instrumental and vocal works.

Some of the Auckland Philharmonia’s Aspiring Musicians, along with other local musicians, come together in this performance to bring Margaret’s music to life — a treasure to be discovered, heard and cherished.
