05. To His Love
08 October 2021, 17:45 - 18:45
St Hilda's College
This dramatised recital brings the fascinating but troubled personality of poet and composer Ivor Gurney to life. Created by writer, broadcaster and Gurney biographer Kate Kennedy (see Event 3), To His Love poignantly illustrates the terrible effects of war and Gurney’s subsequent incarceration in an asylum and enforced separation from his beloved Gloucestershire.
