I’m hugely looking forward to recording Alan Charlton’s masterful song cycle¬†The Cloud, setting Percy Bysshe Shelley’s wonderful poem, with April Fredrick at Potton Hall on Monday and Tuesday. It’s been an immensely challenging but hugely rewarding piece to get to grips with, and Potton Hall’s other-worldly location will be the perfect backdrop for a piece of writing that riffs on the very nature of nature itself.
