A lot of the songs come from poems included in The Hollow of the Hand and most of them were completely altered to fit the rhythm of the music, so the book is worth a reading. Also, the country where each song was written or got inspiration from is specified. Not much but a good start.

There's the two-sentence summary Polly gave to Andrew Marr when she was on his BBC show in 2016. And didn't she write something about the recording process that was given to visitors to Somerset House, or is that a false memory of mine? Does anyone have the text of that? Admittedly none of that gives the context of the individual songs, and we know more about the composition process than we did then.

In fact, I'd missed that, so thank you! The resonances of recording in Somerset House are so very apt and I hadn't thought of it that way. It's yet another example of the strange synchronicities that move through PJ's work.
