Two Frame songs

Voice and instrumental ensemble

For mezzo-soprano, violin and piano

Texts by Janet Frame

I set these 2 poems for performance at Janet Frame’s memorial service in February 2004 in the Dunedin Town Hall. They were sung by Ana Good, with Sandra Crawshaw (violin) and Joyce Whitehead (piano).

About the work
