Ivor Gurney was born in Gloucester in 1890, and was educated as a chorister at Gloucester Cathedral and under Stanford at the Royal College of Music. Stanford said that of all his pupils Gurney ' most fulfilled the accepted idea of genius
He soon established a reputation as a song writer.
In 1915 he joined the army and served in France, where he was gassed. It was during this period that he turned to poetry. After the war he returned to the Royal College of Music under Vaughan Williams. In 1922 he went to live in Gloucestershire, but not long afterwards he collapsed both physically and mentally, and for the last fifteen years of his life he was in the City of London Mental Hospital, where he died on December 26 last.

Songs at the piano
Ronald Gourley is an example of how a man's spirit can triumph over a physical infirmity-he has been totally blind from birth. He is best known on the air as an entertainer in the London Children's Hour.
As a child he could play anything by ear, and his first lessons were given him by a nun at -Stoke-on-Trent, his birthplace. When he was ten he came to London to the Royal Normal College and Academy of Music at Norwood. Later, he won a scholarship to the Royal Academy and Midland Institute School of Music.
