A tribute to those who fought and those who kept the home fires burning 1914 – 1918. For the centenary of WWI, we celebrate the tenacity of the human spirit with the words of Gloucestershire war poets Ivor Gurney and FW Harvey, the soaring delights of Vaughan Williams’ Lark Ascending, and the power of The Fourth of August from Elgar’s majestic Spirit of England. In true wartime spirit we encourage you to join us in singing the classics that kept Great Britain going. Together we’ll discover It’s a Long Way to Tipperary, we’ll Keep the Home Fires Burning and we’ll shed a tear because Roses are Shining in Picardy. ‘I have of the most delightful and beautiful songs you ever cast your beaming eyes on. They are all Elizabethan – the words – and blister my kidneys, bisurate my magnesia if the music is not as English, as joyful, as tender as any lyric of all that noble host…’ Ivor Gurney
