"Working on this album has proved to be a challenging, yet enjoyable and rewarding endeavour.

It's been hard dealing with a man's writing from 80 or so years ago. I started out thinking that generally the Poetry may need to be set and framed in some Spanish musical order and flavour but actually it turns out not so.

Mostly they are more thoughtful, romantic and searching in a language free of all habitual confinement and endemic small-mindedness.

They lead you towards them in a way modern writing, for the most part, does not.

He was writing because he wanted to; not with any prospective audience in mind. That makes an enormous to difference to any artistic endeavour.

In brief, it feels that this has turned out well and is something that Rick and I are very proud of.

The music has a very solitary tone, it certainly sits outside of the area of singer/songwriter and furthermore the words themselves certainly take us to a time and a place when women were tremendously more devoted to the pleasures of being a woman."
