Maud’s Playlist

Mel's piano

Maud loved music, and so do I. Creating a playlist of songs is an important part of my process, to get into the characters and their world. I listened to 19th century music, hymns, and a lot of contemporary music – particularly from PEI. Here are some of the songs from my “Maud Book” playlist.
