Celebrating the friendship between composer and war poet, Ivor Gurney, and musician and first woman music critic, Marion Scott; written and performed by Jan Carey. It was to Scott, that Gurney sent his music and poetry from the trenches. The horror of the Great War, contrasted with his love for his native Gloucester, coloured his writings. Yet after being gassed at Passchendaele, Gurney's deterioration into madness showed that, despite their different backgrounds, Scott and Gurney forged a friendship that withstood war, illness and despair, as well as triumph, madness and joy.
Author Jan Carey
