This Other Eden


The debut album by Kitty Whately

 

"Whately is a captivating live performer... In an age of glossily interchangeable international artists, this one isn't afraid to tell us her story. I, for one, want to hear more..." Gramaphone

"This is a terrific debut disc from Kitty Whately, a wonderfully satisfying recital, beautifully sung and with poetry readings that are very fine." The Classical Reviewer

"Her singing is excellent and expressive while her care for the words- in every sense- is exemplarary." Musicweb International

Earth's Call


The fresh air moves like water round a boat.
The white clouds wander. 
Let us wander too.

A Green Cornfield


The earth was green, the sky was blue:
I saw and heard one sunny morn
A skylark hang between the two,
A singing speck above the corn
