Description
An extensive series of free verse poems written by Peter Oswald over several years, many at Dartington whilst he was resident there (1998-2005).

These works were set to piano and voice by Hugh Nankivell in 2009. In this performance a selection of these works are sung and played by Hugh and read by Peter.

The poems are not ornithological. They are birds of the imagination and new forms kindly given to the imagination by birds. They do not imitate bird calls, but are crafted from the words, minimalist expressionest settings with occasional flurries of improvisation
