Gawain in Winter

by Fish From Oblivion

  • Streaming + Download

    Purchasable with gift card




Gawain in Winter was first performed live at St Mary's Ingestre and St Mary's Stafford in December 2019; during lockdown it seemed a perfect piece to record for these dark times. The vocal parts have all been recorded remotely on phones, and Rachel has then created the soundscape and stitched it all together.

Press “free download” to download both the audio file and the programme with the poem, translation and notes.
