The Forbidden Rose

Honoured to have my poem set to music and sung so sweetly. I find it plays better on Youtube at 480 p.

Battista Pradal (1964) The Forbidden Rose, for Tenor and Cello. Poem by Anthony Howell. Alessandro Cortello, tenor Riccardo Pes, cello https://www.facebook.com/riccardopesv… https://twitter.com/RikyPesCello http://www.battistapradal.com/ http://www.anthonyhowell.org/

A page for the cellist

There is also a commentary behind the scenes

The poem comes from my collection Silent Highway

This Anvil book is supposed to be available from Carcanet, but I am rather pleased to discover that the first edition appears to have sold out. Should be available still on Abebooks or Amazon.
