Product details

The texts for the song cycle Dust on a Butterfly's Wing were selected from seven poems by the Australian poet Minnie Agnes Filson, better known as 'Rickety Kate'. Born in 1898 this remarkable Australian woman was an accomplished pianist, singer and dancer until she was struck down by rheumatoid arthritis early in her life. Yet her creativity continued in poetry. 'Rickety Kate' died in 1971 and it was her daughter-in-law Edda Filson who first introduced me to her work. She is mainly remembered to for her collection "Rhymes & Whimsies".
