The songs from The Walter de la Mare Songbook resulted from an invitation to perform at the first ever conference, “Reading Walter de la Mare” at Cambridge University, England, 2018. Composing 10 original songs, Adèle Paxton (Classical Soprano) and Dennis McCorkle (Jazz Guitarist) teamed up as the duo Mackie and Me to present their unique sound and song settings of the English poet.
“Brilliant and creative music…”
“The depth of the poetry came right through…”
“Blown away by the setting and musicality…”
“Echoes of Lorenz Hart and Stephen Sondheim in the brilliant renderings…”
All poetry of Walter de la Mare has been licensed worldwide by The Literary Trustees of Walter de la Mare and the Society of Authors as their Representatives.
