Our website is currently going through a much overdue reconstruction!

…Meanwhile we’d like to update you on our most recent activity. Hot off the press in November 2016 is a brand new collection of 50 rounds and canons for schools, choirs and singing groups. Since the book has been aimed mainly athe Germaneducational market, the majority of the songs use texts in that language, but there are also numerous items in English and several in French too. As an additional aid for teachers we will shortly be putting MIDI versions of all the songs in the book both on this website and on youtube.

Starborn’s Latest Book Launch

Peter Naumann’s new poetry book Winter Count enjoyed 2 highly successful launch events in June. One at The Mill Arts Centre, Banbury and one Foyles Bookshop in Bristol. Both were unusually well attended and many books were sold. As a result it is highly likely that we will be releasing Winter Count in the not too distant future in a 2nd edition as a paperback.

Below are some photographs of these events.

We are convinced that before too long Peter is going to become a household name among lovers of contemporary poetry and we are proud to be playing a part in this process.
