Nimra, a mother cat in Jordan, has adopted seven orphaned baby chicks and is looking after them alongside her own kittens. The Times has the full story. How cute? Too cute. I hope she isn't just fattening them up for future reference.
Words for, with and about music: novels, stage works, biographies, classical music journalism. Libretto for 'Silver Birch', Roxanna Panufnik's opera for Garsington 2017 ("powerful and poetic" - The Times). Latest novel 'Ghost Variations', based on the Schumann Violin Concerto's 1930s rediscovery. Performing narrated concerts based on it ("highly moving" - Birmingham Post). Now crowdfunding 'Meeting Odette', a 21st-century fairytale.
I receive lots of requests for coverage on JDCMB, but I'm afraid I can't do it all. Adverts are available.
