From Glenden in Minneapolis:
Nan, I had asked you before about the possibility of a concept album for Camille and you had cited funding as an obstacle. Would it be more feasible to make it available only through digital download like iTunes exclusive?

Dear Glenden,

Unfortunately, we cannot release any of the Camille songs as of yet. We need to wait for a major production at which point we will record an album. That's the only way it's going to happen, primarily for legal and copyright reasons. Believe me, I'm as impatient as you are to get those songs out there. We just have to do it through the correct channels at the right time. Thanks for asking, and keep checking in with the website for new developments.


From Lori in New York:
Hi Nan, I unfortunately never got to see Camille but a friend of mine went to see it twice. Since hearing Linda sing it last year at Westbury I fell in love with it. I asked on her website for the lyrics, and when I saw them and told my friend, she said there was a small intro missing, (as best my friend can remember) something like "a fallen tear, a blush of fear...". Can you PLEASE give me the lyrics for that intro? I can't wait to see CC on broadway or at the very least off-broadway. Everyone who saw it raved about it, I know Linda's voice, so I know she sang with every fiber in her body! Thanks so much, take care and I always look forward to anything that your wonderfully talented hands have touched!!

All my best,

Dear Lori,

I wish I could send you lyrics for the intro to "Woman in his Arms." I'm in the unenviable position right now of not being able to publicly release any of the music or lyrics from Camille. Someone else asked me awhile back for the lyrics to "What's Never Been Done Before." The person who asked really identified with the song and it made me so sad not to be able to print up the lyric for her. What it all really comes down to is legal and copyright problems. As soon as Frank and I get a major production of Camille, we will record the album and all lyrics will be printed up in the CD booklet. Again, I apologize for not being able to give you a preview, and I thank you for caring this much and saying such nice things. Hopefully, none of us will have to wait much longer for Camille to really happen.


From Glenden in Minneapolis:
I was just wondering if you could tell us if there has been any new developments with Camille Claudel?

Dear Glenden,

I am happy to report to you that I now believe something will be happening with Camille relatively soon. There are several major sources of interest in Europe and Asia, and most recently in the United States. All of these sources seem genuine and legitimate and all people involved are quite enthusiastic, so I am finally letting myself believe that it's going to happen. I also finally feel ready again to tackle it and turn out the "new and improved Camille." We will keep everyone updated with developments on the website. Don't look for anything major to happen before the summer, but its possible that we'll have the reins in our hands by that time. Let's hope. Glenden, thanks so much for your continuing interest.

My best to you,
