An original composition to accompany Hardy's beloved poem 'The Oxen'

Gordon Thompson is a musician, writer and founding publisher of the independent Clouds of Magellan Press (cloudsofmagellanpress.net) in Melbourne. He has recently completed a CD of song settings of Thomas Hardy's poetry (Neutral Tones - to be released in 2020). 'The Oxen' is the first poem he has adapted and uses the 'international' elements of early 20th century English music as a metaphor for Hardy's continuing struggle with faith.
