A collection of songs and words to honour the memory of Ivor Gurney and his generation, reflecting three phases in his life with Jonathan Carne, Naomi Johnston and David McKee.First, the early influences: pre-war Gloucester where he grew up; the countryside which was a source of visionary inspiration; his scholarship to the Royal College of Music where he became an awkward yet brilliant student and showed early signs of genius.Next, the First World War and the torment of trench warfare and army discipline: a time when Gurney's musical utterance became crystalline and the voice of a unique war poet emerged.Finally, the aftermath of war. Invalided out of the army, with his best verse and many fine songs yet to write, Gurney drifted from casual work back to the College and eventually into a long and harrowing mental decline. Tickets £10 from Hall for Cornwall or on the door.
The Great War's shadow was cast on the organ lofts of England just as in every other sphere. This recital will explore its effects on the music and personalities of the early 20th Century British music world.
Free with retiring collection.
An evening of stories, music and poetry featuring Roy ray, Katie Kirk and Annie Henry. Both poignant and heart-warming 'Working on No Man's Land' engages the audience using Roy's warmth and natural humour to explore our shared experience of war and conflict. The punctuation of poems and songs lead the audience to reflect on their own memories and responses to conflict. Refreshments available.
