Dawn Songs. Shearsman Books. Three essays on music. A short one on Derek Bailey as heard in 1970; a moderate-size one on surviving west gallery choral pieces performed in pubs of the Sheffield Moorlands area at Christmas, called Mass Lyric; and Dawn Songs itself, which is on a lamentational genre of Transylvanian village music and forms the bulk of the book. So if ever there was a book discussing musical practices which very few people here know about or want to, this is it.

Mull in the Rain. Guillemot Press. A small letterpress pamphlet (modeled, they say, on the format of Poetical Histories). Three poems from the "On Islands" set.

Pennine Tales the second set (which will not bear this title). Calder Valley Poetry.

Collected Poems. Shearsman Books 2017 or 2018 (depending mainly on how long it takes me to get the whole thing together). Probably at least two volumes. Will collect from three years before any previously collected poem, to 2016.
