Remembering conflict in words and music

During the period 1914-1918 some of the most beautiful words and music were written in the most awful circumstances. From the beaches of Gallipoli Rupert Brooke 'longs for spring', set to music by John Ireland. There are some little known poems collected by Michael Head in his Songs of the Countryside. - 'the song was for you but the ships was for me'. Lizzie Jones gives us poetry and we turn to Ivor Novello for a lighter look at loved ones parted by war.
