News - In Development

Looking for current releases? Many of Lynn Job's latest poetry can be found within current music manuscripts. She often incorporates excerpts from her poems, or new poetic texts, into her printed music preface pages, and/or score title sheets. This is discussed at length, with examples, in Living Music Journal (Vol 21, No. 1, Spring 2006), available in all fine music academic libraries, listed above. Her newest authored script is heard performed before each of 3 movements within House of Jatamansi (organ & flute) on the CD Jatamansi (Raven Recordings, 2013. OAR-922).

Lynn Job's largest poetry manuscript in work will release one day as a monograph edition. It contains mature themes of devotional metaphors and allegory centered around the Judeo-Christian canon and literary models such as Song of Songs, Psalms, and the books of Job, Hosea and Jeremiah. Currently at 50 poems, many more will be added or replaced. No print deadline is set. Readings are advertised above, as applicable.

Much creative inspiration is drawn from the Dead Sea Scrolls, and, from popular histories by Scottish scholar E. Raymond Capt. Buy his books from Artisan Publishers | here | among other vendors.

They are a beautiful, ritual opening."
