Domingus is dedicated to the printmaker Martin Ware and the composer Barry Anderson. The first Domingus poem inspired¬†Martin Ware to make a powerful etching; that provoked Paul Hyland to write more poems, and so on, until a series of poems and images was complete.¬†Domingus was recorded at Maida Vale and twice broadcast on BBC Radio 3 with a fabulous electro-acoustic score by Barry Anderson, and with John Franklyn-Robbins as Domingus. It was also performed at the Almeida Theatre, Queen Elizabeth Hall, etc., and recorded on Barry Anderson’s CD Arc.

Praise for “Domingus”

“Paul Hyland's two pamphlets, Domingus and Riddles for Jack, have a style 'like a supple glove'. [Domingus is] a linked series of vignettes, Hogarthian in tone, powerful and full of clarities. His language is in the main characterised by carefulness and a spare elegance.”
