The Secret Garden

In 2008 Vicky Harkovitch, the artistic director of the Roving Park Players asked me to write a few songs for their production of Comedy of Errors. In the years since, I have written songs for Peter Pan, Alice in Wonderland, Hamlet and Wind in the Willows.


This year it was Bryan Haynes, who wrote the stage adaptation for this summer's production of The Secret Garden, who asked me if I would be interested in writing twenty-one songs for the play. I told him, of course, that I would be thrilled to do so.

Soon after the songs were written, Linda Couch, with whom I had collaborated on the songbook for my CD Baker's Dozen, and I decided that these songs presented the perfect opportunity to create another songbook together. And so, we did. And here they are.
