Tyger and Other Tales
Those with a hankering for soft and smooth “art-rock” renderings of romantic poems will be interested in Tyger and Other Tales: English Romantic Poetry Set to Music, a new CD with vocals by Krysia Kristianne, backed by various combinations of guitars, keyboards, bass, drums, and violin. The CD includes a poem each by Blake, Byron, Shelley, Keats, Wordsworth, and Coleridge—plus, less scrutably, two Renaissance lyrics, an instrumental, the last paragraph of Wuthering Heights, and an abridgment of Tennyson’s “Lady of Shalott.” The CD is available from record shops or direct from Sentience Records, 24049 Chestnut Way, Calabasas, CA 91302-2367. $15.98 + $2.00 shipping and handling (+8.25% sales tax for CA residents). Telephone (818) 591-2709, fax (818) 843-0301.
