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.
