We’ve had a lot of comments on, and interest in, the powerful and moving end sequence from our Remembrance/Armistice Day programme, which came from the University of Oxford’s First World War Poetry Digital Archive’s special presentation in Second Life.

The piece of music was “Only Remembered”, sung by leading British folk singers Coope Boyes and Simpson, and available on their album Private Peaceful: The Concert, NoMasters Records, NMCD24.

The artists kindly gave us permission to upload the segment to YouTube, where you can find it in High Definition.

Special thanks to Coope, Boyes and Simpson for their permission to use the music, and to Georgina Boyes for working so hard with us to make it possible – at a time when they were all actually in Belgium performing in the vicinity of some of the important First World War sites.

Also many thanks for the tireless editing work of Texas Timtam at Treet who shot and edited the video for this very special sequence. Actually, she edited it twice in advance of the show on November 10th so it could appear just the way we wanted it. Thanks Texas!

And of course you can see the entire 10 November show here.
