About

A collection of intense and powerful English choral works all written during, or shortly after the end of, the First World War.

Each work reflects its composer’s response to the conflict, from the turbulent start of Stanford’s For lo, I raise up, written shortly after the start of the war, to Vaughan Williams’ paean of thanksgiving Lord, thou hast been our refuge – written for a service at St Paul’s Cathedral in 1921.

This recording, beautifully sung by the choir of boys and men of Truro Cathedral, includes the first complete recording of Alan Gray’s threepart cycle 1914 - written in memory of the two sons he lost in the war - together with the rarely-recorded A Short Requiem by Walford Davies of 1915, written 'in sacred memory of all those who have fallen in the war'.

Also included are Parry’s magnificent six Songs of Farewell, largely written during 1914 and 15, but not performed in their entirety until 1919, a year after Parry’s death.
