Janet Jennings




A programme of music conceived as a celebration of the successful struggle to gain female suffrage, giving voice to a range of perceptions and preoccupations as expressed by leading female thinkers and writers. Janet Jennings has set to music words spoken and written by a range of women poets including Ursula Bethell, and Christina Rossetti, and iconic women prominent in the suffragette cause.
