Leading British folk musicians Coope Boyes & Simpson provide the music in their unique and moving acapella style with the song “Only Remembered”, as we view aspects of the unique exhibition by the University of Oxford’s First World War Poetry Digital Archive in the immersive 3D virtual world of Second Life. The exhibition simulates aspects of life in the trenches on the Western Front during the 1914-1918 war and presents work by the “War Poets” of the period.
The song – originally a Horatius Bonar / Ira Sankey hymn from the 19th century, arranged by John Tams – also appears in the play “War Horse”, adapted by Nick Stafford from the book by Michael Morpurgo.
