Joshua Ellicott, tenor/reader
Simon Lepper, piano
Music and readings of letters which take us into the world of nineteen-year-old First World War volunteer, Jack Ellicott. His great-nephew Joshua reads excerpts from Jack’s letters and sings songs of the period. Whilst this piece is specifically about our Jack it also speaks for the many thousands of soldiers like him – for the ‘Everyman’ of that Great War.
