Lyrics

Jehane has been writing lyrics for plays, operas and individual recordings since 1974 when she worked with the Folk Band, Steeleye Span, on lyrics for a play about the artist Goya, at the Edinburgh Festival. Librettos, lullabies and blues ballads are all part of a wide- ranging oeuvre for choral and individual voice.

COME HOME IN THE MORNING
SAIL AWAY
BECAUSE
YOU'RE NOT THE ONE
