This is really the piece that I wrote for Great-Uncle Ralph. I had spoken with Ralph’s son who was planning a trip to the very place where Ralph was killed, to coincide with the exact time he was killed. As I couldn’t be there, I had a recording of the work done and sent to his son so it could be played at the place Ralph was shot and killed, 100 years to the minute on 27 August 2017. I felt that this particular circle was now complete. Click on the left-hand photo below to load the Youtube video of its performance by the Stroud-based Thames Head Singers.
