Ivor Gurney: Composer and Poet of War and Place

A lecture-recital 

TIM KENDALL PROFESSOR OF ENGLISH, UNIVERSITY OF EXETER
PHILIP LANCASTER
BARITONE
TIMOTHY NOON 
PIANO (Director of Music, Exeter Cathedral)

Ivor Gurney is renowned as both a song composer and a poet of place and war. He served in the First World War, and ended his days in an asylum, torn away from his beloved Gloucestershire.

Two Exeter University scholars, Philip Lancaster and Tim Kendall, are bringing some of Gurney's previously unknown and unpublished poetry and music to a wider audience. In this lecture-recital they talk about Gurney and his work and, with Timothy Noon at the piano, bring that work to life with performances and readings of his songs and poems.
