Unusually, the packaging for this CD contains a separate booklet consisting of a narrative poem by Glyn Maxwell (b.1962) inspired by this music, and accompanied with WWI woodcuts by Käthe Kollwitz (1867-1945). The idea is an unusual one, to be sure, but it must be emphasized that the music is entirely period.
