Create Wishlist


This profound CD artfully combines words and music as a memorial to the 100th anniversary of the First World War. “Here is both music and poetry that commemorates those dreadful years from 1914 to 1918. The beauty of both song and verse is there to be received and enjoyed – but also to remind us that the ‘War to end war’ did not do that, and one hundred years on, we still inhabit a war-torn world.” (Peter Atkinson) This is the Proteus Ensemble’s debut album, recorded in Worcester Cathedral.
