A celebration of the friendship between the First World War poet and composer, Ivor Gurney, and musician and pioneering female music critic, Marion Scott, written and performed by Jan Carey. It was to Scott that Gurney sent his music and poetry from the trenches. His writing was coloured by the horror of the Great War and his deep love for his native Gloucestershire. Yet after being gassed at Passchendaele, Gurney’s slow deterioration into madness showed that despite their very different backgrounds Scott and Gurney forged an enduring friendship that withstood both war, illness and despair, as well as triumph and joy.
