ANZAC Day - an Ode to the Fallen
For the Fallen With proud thanksgiving, a mother for her children England mourns for her dead across the sea, Flesh of her flesh they were, spirit of her spirit, Fallen in the cause of the free. Solemn the drums thrill: Death august and royal Sings sorrow up into immortal spheres, There is music in the midst of desolation And glory that shines upon our tears. They went with songs to the battle, they were young, Straight of limb, true of eyes, steady and aglow, They were staunch to the end…
That's one small step for Milo...
This is probably the longest period of time I have ever left between my blog entries. And there are a few, unexciting, reasons for this.

Gurney: War Elegy
The story of Ivor Gurney is one of the saddest in classical music: Gurney enlisted as a soldier in the Gloucestershire Regiment in 1915, but suffered a breakdown in March 1918, apparently as a result of shell shock. He wrote his War Elegy in 1920, but was declared insane in 1922 and spent the last 15 years of his life in mental hospitals.
