Buddhist Rain

Rattle Records 2009

Song settings of Bill Manhire’s poetry, performed by Norman Meehan, Hannah Griffin and multi-instrumentalist Colin Hemmingsen.

I had mixed feelings when Norman first got in touch about setting my poems. Didn’t they have music already? But I liked what we did with them enormously – I felt that he had somehow found new cadences and melodies in the words that were as true as anything I felt was there originally. And I loved Hannah’s voice.
