Here is a unique book that captures ever-varyingly the special qualities of Peakland past and present. Characters ranging from gnarled, weather-beaten craftsmen to the unlikely creators of famous puddings rub shoulders with ghosts (and goats) in poetry that is by turns poignant, whimsical, spooky or just unashamedly out-and-out fun. Poetry of the Peak is a tourist guide in verse to a host of Peak District treasures, be they famous country seats like Chatsworth or Haddon Hall or secret dells and dales that nevertheless have their stories to tell. With forty skilfully-crafted poems rooted in an ancient yet very much still living landscape, it's the perfect read for anyone who likes to be simultaneously educated and entertained!
A native of the Peak District, Simon Mold has spent his working life as a teacher of English and Classics and as a singer in some of England's leading choirs. He has published many articles in well-known musical and literary magazines, and has composed a sizeable body of music which is widely performed. Two albums featuring Simon's music have recently been released: The Beatific Vision (on the Herald label), and Hush, Little Child (for Heritage), a CD of Christmas carols. A third, that includes a performance of A Peakland Suite (pp 93-108), is due for release by Heritage in December 2019.
