Some really interesting articles Michael. The CD is a particular bonus as one of the Gurney pieces is a first recording. I know a number of other Forum Pals enjoyed the recent BBC 4 documentary on Gurney (there was a thread in this area) and I am sure they will be equally interested in this magazine.

Hello David

Yes have treated myself to a copy and the CD is indeed magnificent. It's particularly exciting to hear Ivor Gurney's 'A Gloucestershire Rhapsody ' - which sadly was never performed during his lifetime.

Haven't got round to reading much of the magazine yet.

Regards

EDIT : Have posted this thread address to recent Gurney documentary thread http://1914-1918.invisionzone.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=209049&page=2

I must admit I thought of you Ian when I saw the magazine, following our chat about Gurney after the TV programme. I presume this is one of those pieces suppressed/hidden after his death that you were telling me about

Did I see something about Ruhrleben in the link? Or did I imagine it?

You didn't imagine it, the magazine included an article on the musicians in Ruhrleben.

Thanks mate; as four of my footballers and my great uncle Herbert spent most of the war in the camp I think I should invest in a copy.

Pete,
