  1. Thanks Nic, Hans and Donna for taking the time, and for offering 3 quite different interpretations of the poem. Never having heard a poem of mine read by someone else before, I find it instructive to hear how the individual emphases, cadences and phrasings change both the music and the meaning.

    For myself, I’m still learning how to translate what I hear in my head into sound and my readings are always flawed somewhere.

    It’s particularly good to hear female voices reading. No offence to Hans! I just always think I’d do better if I could pitch my voice up a tone or two instead of grumbling.

    Anyway, I enjoyed the experience and I certainly applaud the mission of Whale Sound.

    Thanks again
