This was the first song that Benjamin presented to actress Julie Clare, while it was still incomplete.
Julie went on to perform Letter To A Daughter at the Royal Court Theatre, The Edinburgh Assembly rooms, and on all the recordings. She has since become a very close friend of Benjamin's, something of a muse... and has sung on most of his subsequent recordings.
