Pleasing Myself
Six songs for soprano and piano, after the textile images of Janet Bolton



Three Happy Girls Flying Kites, by Janet Bolton

These six songs represent my first venture in creating my own words for music. Pleasing Myself began life following a talk and exhibition by Janet Bolton at the Saltaire Festival in 2009. I was smitten by the simplicity and charm of her textile ‘stories’, miniature quilts that played on and with my imagination. I wrote about my reaction to her images on the Internet and this particular ‘blog’ continues to receive more
 
hits per day than any other I have written. Janet’s textile images I now realise affect many people. They tell stories that relate to the gentle mainstream of personal and family life. When we view them they touch our memories and we invest them with our past and possibly, in what they say about children, our hopes for the future too.
