He is principally known for his choral music, which included large-scale works for chorus and orchestra, as well as his eighteen published books, including biographies of Vaughan Williams, Elgar and Mendelssohn.

An excellent biography - the fact that the author was born and raised in Gloucester gives an extra insight into the kind of environment that Gurney was surrounded by in his youth and which was such an important influence on him. Essential reading for anyone interested in Ivor Gurney's life.

A good review of the significance of this artist both as poet and composer. It shows that Gurney was not simply a victim of war - in someways it was the making of him as a man and as an artist. A lot here still to explore.
