Selections from Jenni’s work Love Songs is from a performance by Jennet Ingle – oboe and Maura Janton Cock – soprano. The collection of texts in this work tell a story of the Native American woman – a story that she might tell to her child while she rocked the child to sleep. It is a story that is universally understood, but points to the strength of not only the Native American woman, but to the strength of all women to persevere, to raise children and to keep community strong against all odds. It is a “love song” in that it goes beyond just romantic love, but tells of love for a child and love of the land.
