The words are taken from the many poems of the English poet and composer/songwriter Ivor Gurney (1890-1937). Gurney suffered from schizophrenia and spent the latter part of his life in a mental asylum. The poems chosen (particularly 'To God') reflect Gurney's mental instability, frustration, anger and a pathetic sense of hopelessness.
Instrumentation: Soprano, violin, viola, cello.
Duration: 17 min.
Contents note: Song 1: The songs I had -- Song 2: Had I a song -- Song 3: To God -- Song 4: The songs I had.
