Michael Nyman Six Celan Songs

Songs of Solace is a musical response to Julie Nicholson’s book, A Song for Jenny, which relates the tragic death of her daughter in the 2005 London bombings.

The music was featured in the BBC dramatisation of the book, which starred Emily Watson and aired in July this year to mark the 10th anniversary. It contains settings of text by Shakespeare, Tennyson, Wheeler Wilcox and from the book of Ecclesiastes, as well as a number of powerful songs without words.
