Kate Bernadette Benedict
Poet & Writer

 

 
 Astonishing how Sean O’Leary has married the words of Hopkins to musical styles ranging from folk to gospel to blue grass and more. There are beautiful and haunting melodies here, each a perfect distillation of poem into song. Has the composer been guided by the spirit of Hopkins himself? It seems so. I’ve been listening to these CD's with a fanatical obsession!
