Rough Music, Paperback / softback Book

Rough Music Paperback / softback


'Rough music' is the old English name for a custom of public scapegoating.

This is a book full of disturbing musical echoes, in which brilliant renewals of carol, charm, folksong and ballad explore themes of violence, loss and belonging.

Fiona Sampson's characteristic lyric intensity deftly fuses metaphysics and politics with the vernacular of daily life.
