Incredibly moving, profound, ground-breaking – Audience feedback
The poems explore the lives of ordinary people down the ages, delving into Celtic mysticism, German POWs celebrating Hitler’s birthday at a nearby English camp, a migrant woman giving birth on the highway, to resonant evocations of a meeting between a local man and Charles Dickens…Jenni Pinnock’s settings are apt and seldom predictable, fresh-faced when required, more withdrawn and ambiguous when the poetry calls for greater shades of meaning.

– The Daffodil Perspective
