The Singers has a dynastic, historical context. There are vivid descriptions of three generations of a family burdened with the drudgery of hard labour and poverty, having talents for singing and artistic pursuits and possessing a terrible secret which is whispered from generation to generation until, finally, it reaches a public conclusion. The complex family themes develop against the background of a changing Potteries environment and a fluctuating, dramatic series of international events.
