Programme Notes

'Correct your Maps' is a song, with instrumental interludes, for mezzo and five players. It lasts six minutes. The text is taken from 'News from Newcastle' a poem by the seventeenth century writer John Cleveland. We should be grateful to him for at least two extraordinary lines: 'England's a perfect world, hath Indies too; Correct your maps, Newcastle is Peru!' © John Woolrich
