Blow The Wind Southerly

The Kathleen Ferrier Awards have produced a book to celebrate the centenary of Ferrier’s birth entitled Blow The Wind Southerly which includes articles from Rupert Christiansen, Christopher Fifield and Graham Johnson; a selection of memories from people who met Kathleen or heard her sing, including John Copley, John Tooley and George Christie, and extracts from letters and diaries offering an insight into her character and the impact she had on the public. A disc featuring a selection of lesser-known recordings, spoken excerpts from Kathleen herself and interviews with fellow singers and contemporaries is also included.
