About the album

Following on from his critically-acclaimed recording “Dhammapada”, Ronald Corp has again collaborated with writer Francis Booth to produce these settings of Buddhist texts, taken from the Therigatha. 
These words, written around 2,500 years ago, are not only some of the earliest extant poems by women, but also the only canonical work in any religion written entirely by women. The original authors were Buddhist nuns, and the texts have been newly translated by Booth for this recording. Corp’s settings are beautiful and spiritual, capturing the essence of this Eastern religion’s words in his own Western musical voice. As a Church of England priest, Corp’s choice of text is interesting, powerful and important.
These beautiful songs, accompanied by an all-female chamber ensemble of alto flute, clarinet and viola, are beautifully performed by rising star soloists Sarah Castle and Samuel Evans.
