As of now, I'm offering almost all my music
for free from my website. I don't need to earn money from song
sales, and I think I can reach much more people this way. I do
appreciate it if you buy the music anyway :)
Releases, so far:
I've released several albums: 'Lost In Love' (2007), 'The Void'
(2009), 'Quest' (2011), 'Sonnets by Susan Evance' (in two volumes)
(2016) 'Thy Delightful Shade' (2017), 'Autumn Airs (2019), and
recently 'Maria, Mater Dei' (2022).
'Maria, Mater Dei' is an album sung in Latin, containing Marian
antiphons, hymns and prayers. The 'Magnificat' was released as a
demo and video in January 2020, and 'Alma Redemptoris Mater' as a
single in November 2021.
Setting English poetry to music is an ongoing project, and recently
I released the album 'Autumn Airs, featuring poems (about Autumn...)
set to music. From this album, the single 'Autumn' (poem by John
Clare) was released.
From the project 'Thy Delightful Shade', a first single was released
in 2013: 'Shall Earth No More Inspire Thee', after the poem by Emily
Bronte. Further single releases in 2014 were 'The Deserted
House' (Alfred Lord Tennyson), 'The Tree' (Anne Finch) and 'Times Go
By Turns' (Saint Sir Robert Southwell), and, in 2017, 'Ode To Pity'
(William Collins). The album 'Thy Delightful Shade' has been
released in February 2017. Videos were made for each single.
'Sonnets by Susan Evance' explores the melancholic poetry of this
forgotten 19th century poet. 26 of her sonnets were set to music.
Videos were made for six songs.
The first three albums are more mainstream, although 'Quest' has
also been described as a torch song album.
Also released are compilation albums, one containing new remixes
from the albums 'Lost In Love' and 'The Void' ('Extended Remixes
2013') and one containing reworked ballads from the first three
albums, as well as four new tracks ('Ballads 2007-2014'). In 2015, a
compilation of all single releases to date was added, titled
'Singles 2007-2014' (in two volumes).
