The Matter Of Britain (2009)

  • ‘The Matter of Britain’ is written by Keith Howden, my father. It contains two sets of poems: ‘The Matter of Britain’, pulling at the Arthurian legends, and ‘Witchwords’, drawing on the story of ‘The Pendle witches’, set in his native Lancashire. For each of the poems, he has created an illustration. On the accompanying CD, he reads the poems and I have set them to music. The music is atmospheric and neo-classical, tied to the words and the power of the poems.

    The hardback and bound book is beautfully produced by PREcordings in Rome. Limited to 500 copies only. This is something truly special.
