Mansfield – In Her Own Words


Mansfield – In Her Own Words is a concert of selected poems by Katherine Mansfield, set to contemporary music composed by several of our leading songwriters and recording artists including Lawrence Arabia, Julia Deans, The Bats, Mel Parsons, and French for Rabbits.

Twelve tracks by 12 different composers with a multi-band format, on and off for a song each, linked by a curated selection of Katherine Mansfield's letters.

"Her letters show her deadly serious, warm and friendly, cynical and sarcastic, absurd and loving, morbid, though human in conforming to the recipient's wishes and expectations... one has to beware of the casual, jejune, utterances, which are merely thrown off...."

The companion album, Mansfield, is out now.
