BEYOND THE SOMME
A Musical Exploration of World War
This much acclaimed album of songs, poems and marching tunes explored World War One from many aspects: the glory, courage, camaraderie, carnage and sheer futility. The production was crafted to weave together traditional material with recent creations to provide a depth of insight which included the roles of Irish nationalists and of course the Germans.
The recently revived and updated stage show uses tracks on the album, and more, to address these issues.
