If you haven't already, book now for the Ivor Gurney Society's Spring Weekend!
Taking place in Churchdown, on the edge of Gloucester, on the side of Chosen Hill, Saturday 15 May features talks on Gurney and Graham Peel, given by critic Roderic Dunnett and artist and scholar Rolf Jordan, respectively, and a recital by some chap called Philip Lancaster, accompanied by Andrew Plant. On the Sunday, 16th, we have a Gurney related walk followed by lunch at a local hostelry. These weekends are always most enjoyable and memorable.
The song recital will feature songs by Graham Peel, together with settings by Gurney, Herbert Howells and John Ireland. Combined tickets for the talk and recital are £12 and can be obtained from John Phillips, by telephoning 01432 363103, or email johnl[dot]hay[at!]googlemail[dot]com.
