Written for Dame Sarah Connolly and Tenebrae, Judith Bingham’s setting of Ivor Gurney’s poetry is surrounded by four of his songs, as well as valedictory pieces by Elgar and by Gurney’s friend Herbert Howells, preceding Schoenberg’s unaccompanied choral plea for peace on earth.

2018 marks the centenary of World War One, and Gurney’s elegiac compositions, which often are shadowed by his better known poetic output, emphasise the importance of remembrance. This concert also marks the launch of Tenebrae’s latest release, A Walk with Ivor Gurney.
