About

Following on from his critically-acclaimed recording 'Dhammapada', Ronald Corp has again collaborated with writer Francis Booth for his settings of Buddhist texts, this time taken from the Therigatha. These words, written around 2,500 years ago, are not only some of the earliest extant poems by women, but also the only canonical work in any religion written entirely by women.

The original authors were Buddhist nuns, and the texts have been newly translated by Booth for this recording. Corpís settings are beautiful and spiritual, capturing the essence of this Eastern religionís words in his own Western musical voice. As a Church of England priest, Corpís choice of text is interesting, powerful and important Ė a simple gesture of alliance in a World torn by division.

This is beautiful music that will enchant and calm the soul.
