Review of Poems in “Poetry Pleasure” by W.J. Thraveson-Lambert (December 2007)

David Francis reads his own poems and leads the small ensemble that plays his own compositions, which complement the poems.

David’s work is broadcast on American radio stations and he was heard live on air whilst touring the UK in 2006. To my ear, this is a delightful CD and one I shall play often. The music complements the short poems nicely and makes for pleasant listening. However, much more than that, the ideas and emotions expressed within the poetry give one pause for thought. A thought that stays with you allowing time for reflection and meditation.
