Settings of poems by Ivor Gurney - poet and composer - who is one of the less well-known poets of the 1st World War. He was not killed in the war, like Wilfred Owen, Edward Thomas, George Butterworth and others, but was so severely affected by it that his mental health never recovered and in fact he ended his days in an asylum. However, he continued to write poetry and music, much of which was published. The poems reflect the poignant relationship between his love of the English countryside and the horrors he experienced in the war. They have been composed with 2014's anniversary of the start of the Great War in mind.
