Songs by Diana Blom

By Diana Blom

Regular price $25.00 Sale

"I’d been writing songs for many years before realising that my choice of texts was largely those by Australian and New Zealand poets and novelists.  There’s something very rewarding about setting evocative words of places you know well, and highly satisfying accompanying and composing songs for singers with beautiful voices of different ranges and colours who work on the songs, discuss aspects arising with me, and then deliver a fine interpretation."  Diana Blom 

The singers represented on this disc are Ayse Göknur Shanal soprano, Emma Stacker mezzo-soprano, Lotte Lataukefu contralto, Kevin Hanrahan and Brett Weymark tenors, Clive Birch bass, who are accompanied at the piano by David Wickham and Diana Blom.
