George Butterworth’s A Shropshire Lad takes texts from A E Housman’s poems of young men facing death.
Vaughan Williams turned to poems by Robert Louis Stevenson for his Songs of Travel, a set of nine songs in which the wanderer-narrator philosophically accepts the mixture of joys and sorrows offered to him along the road.
Gurney – the youngest of the three composers – was also a poet, and in Severn Meadows expressed his longing for home in both text and music. Severn Meadows was composed during Gurney’s time in the trenches.
