It’s National Poetry Month once again in the U.S., and Elizabeth has some new releases from the Rhapsodize Audio project to share. First, her new solo project, Gloriana: A Queen Elizabeth Rhapsody, is now ready to download. This tribute to Queen Elizabeth I, who ruled England from 1558-1603, includes works by Elizabeth herself and poetry about the legendary monarch by her contemporaries and succeeding generations. Second, Elizabeth reads nine poems in the collection 1915: A Rhapsodic Tribute to James Elroy Flecker, produced in collaboration with fellow rhapsodes.
Elizabeth is continuing to celebrate National Poetry Month by tweeting daily poems and making new free recordings of her favorite poems. Today’s poem is “Ode to a Nightingale” by John Keats. You can read the poem and find out more about Keats here, and listen to Elizabeth’s reading here:
