Who, What & Why?

Any occasional musings that appear on this blog will most often stray into music and poetry, sometimes of his own making.  It may venture more widely in the arts and literature, or perhaps even take in the everyday run of life.

Any such thoughts are by the now mid-Devon-based composer, singer, researcher, writer, editor, lecturer and occasional poet, Philip Lancaster (www.philiplancaster.com).

The title of the blog comes from Walt Whitman and Ralph Vaughan Williams, but it seemed like a good title for a blog where anything (or nothing!) may happen.  The picture at its head is a portion of John Constable’s ‘Old Sarum’: in my opinion one of his most wonderful cloudscapes.

I have previously maintained a blog about my work on Ivor Gurney which, if of interest, can be found HERE.  This site is nominally archived and I do not intend to add to it. Further musings on Gurney may instead appear in this Unknown Region.
