Christine Hanson’s wonderful musical compositions accompanying what is probably Service’s best-known poem make full play with the poetry’s different colours, nuances, tones and range—varying from traditional jigs, reels and country waltzes to southern swing and frosty musical soundscapes which perfectly evoke the bizarre, tragicomic setting of Service’s poem.

Christine emerged triumphant from a very long fistfight sporting a Pinteresque keeker applied in instalments during her formative years.
She then decided to build a cathedral and could have used film, paint or the printed word, but she chose music and went off with Sam McGee to fight amongst the Northern Lights.
She rose up twinkling from that scrap and her work is sublime.
These delights are the first of many from a great artist.
