Exquisitely Woven: Words and music by Marguerite.
A beautiful image of how we are woven from light, breath and vibration was growing by the
time I read Hafiz’s poem Wayfarer. Sitting beside my father, I was amazed at how he shone
with grace and an inner light even as his body and mind were unravelling.
The violin represents the soul.
Exquisitely Woven is for 2 women’s voices, violin and piano
Exquisitely Woven was sung by Marguerite Wallis and Liz Mantle.
Piano and violin; Marguerite Wallis
All tracks were recorded and mastered by Oli Whitworth in his studio

Heartfelt gratitude to all the singers and musicians who helped with this project
including; Sweet Edge who have sung these pieces in many concerts, my family for
their love and Fiona Dobie (my singing teacher) whose smile gives me confidence.
A deep bow to my Sufi Retreat Guide, Noor Jacobs who inspires and encourages my
creativity. Warm thanks to Oli Whitworth for his sensitivity, musicality and friendship.
Dedicated to the memory of my father Ronald Watts: a Quaker, agriculturalist and journalist who was ‘smitten by Africa’.
