|flute, oboe, clarinet, french horn and bassoon
Two lyric movements for wind quintet (flute, oboe, clarinet, French horn and bassoon) after poems by Ivor Gurney.
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
Pour out your bounty, moon of radiant shining
On all this shattered flesh, these quiet forms;
For these were slain, so quiet, still reclining,
In the noblest cause was ever waged with arms.
2) To His Love
He's gone and all our plans
are useless indeed.
We'll walk no more on Cotswold
where the sheep feed
quietly and take no heed.
His body that was so quick
is not as you
knew it, on Severn river
under the blue
driving our small boat through.
You would not know him now...
but still he died
nobly, so cover him over
with violets of pride
Purple from Severn side.
Cover him, cover him soon!
and with thickset
masses of memoried flowers
hide that red wet
thing I must forget.
