From St Lawrence's Church, Shaw's Corner, tenor Benjamin Hulett sings Somervell, Butterworth and Gurney and violinist Elena Urioste and pianist Zhang Zuo play Elgar's Violin Sonata.
Music from two generations of British composers affected by the First World War, recorded earlier this year at the church at Shaw's Corner, the former home of George Bernard Shaw, now run by the National Trust. Tenor Benjamin Hulett performs settings of AE Housman poems with the pianist Christopher Glynn, and Radio 3 New Generation Artists Elena Urioste and Zhang Zuo perform Elgar's Violin Sonata.
