A selection of uplifting and reflective music to mark Remembrance Day. Much of the music is written by composers who served in the war, or composed during war time.
Gurney enlisted as a soldier in the Gloucestershire Regiment in 1915, but suffered a breakdown in March 1918, apparently as a result of shell shock. He wrote his War Elegy in 1920, but was declared insane in 1922 and spent the last 15 years of his life in mental hospitals.
