The Poems
Our poetry volumes are samplers from the greatest English poems of all time set to originally composed music that will allow the listener to wander along in their own mind's eye.
Death, Love and Hope

Volume One: Death Love and Hope is now available on online music stores such as iTunes, AmazonMP3, Shockhound and Lala.

Now in its pre-release, Volume One is already receiving rave reviews from both the music industry and academia. The work is being hailed with such comments as "fresh", "incredibly sensitive" and "imaginative". Or as one listener commented, "Wow, now that's something to kick back and listen to".

Volume Two: Poems of Encouragement is now in its initial planning and selection process.
