FRANCIS: A LIFE IN SONGS

Synopsis

St Francis of Assissi was one of the most compelling spirits the world has seen. He was also a poet, a musician and a dancer. His world was coloured by troubadour lays, brightened by birdsong, ordered by the bells and chants of the Church and transfigured by the angel-lyres he heard about him. Here Ann Wroe, turns to verse to tell of his life, as both myth and man, across history and culture, in nature and community.
