Dr Godfried Croenen (French) has recorded medieval and modern poems by Charles d’Orléans and Stéphane Mallarmé for a new exhibition currently showing at the Walker Art Gallery on the Art Books of Henry Matisse.

Visitors to the exhibition can see the illustrations Mallarmé made for these poems, as well as hear recordings of the French originals and English translations of these texts on audio points. You can listen to one of these poems (Brise Marine or Sea Breeze) here.
