‘Gurney’s beautiful compositions were not fully appreciated until after his death’
Poet’. Outliving his friend by 20 years, he died in 1957. Gurney’s considerable talents as manifested in his powerful poetry and beautiful compositions were to not be fully appreciated until after his death, aged 47, but both Gloucestershire lads are now honoured with their own societies and following – a testimony to the fellowship that flourished on the banks of the Severn.
