    With Love and Fury is a series of musical settings to ten poems by Judith Wright. The sequence was conceived as both an album and a touring concert.

    'The musical settings enhance the turmoil of conflict and destruction that bursts out of Wright’s words. The song cycle is dark and intense. The narrative alludes to a profound concern for the environment and our relationship with the land and its people – issues that Judith Wright felt strongly about during her life as a conservationist and an Aboriginal rights activist' (Daniela Kaleva. Australian Stage 3 May 2016).

    The poems that comprise Love and Fury (in album order) are:
