Settings of four moving poems by Ivor Gurney - Song, Requiem, To His Love and Song and Pain. The poems were written in the light of the First World War. Robert Hugill's songs address issues of love, friendship and loss to form a trajectory from loss to acceptance.
In 2007, To His Love came 2nd in the English Poetry and Song Society's Ivor Gurney Competition and Requiem came 4th.
Pour out your light, O stars, and do not hold
Your loveliest shining from earth's outworn shell
Pure and cold your radiance, pure and cold
My dead friend's face as well"
