Carter, Sydney: Nothing Fixed or Final

Ref: CD0092 Categories: , By:


A new compilation album of Sydney Carter’s songs and poems sung and produced by Franciscus Henri.
Franciscus Henri Productions title.

Only available from this site for orders to UK and Europe.

When Sydney Carter died in March 2004, his obituary in The Guardian anointed him ‘folk poet, holy sceptic, and iconoclastic theologian’. The man who once called himself ‘God’s loyal opposition’ might have thought that a bit excessive, but there is some truth there and it is likely he wouldn’t have minded too much. Franciscus Henri knew the songs on this CD forty years ago. In 1972 he was chosen accompanist on Sydney’s tour of Australia. These songs are part of the performer’s continuing journey.
