Peace is a recurring theme in the songs of the English a cappella trio Barry Coope, Jim Boyes and Lester Simpson. It was the power of their lyrics on the First World War that led Piet Chielens, coordinator of the In Flanders Fields Museum, to commission them in 1993 to compose and perform music for the Passchendaele Peace Concerts. Eventually they participated in five different productions, on former battlefields or contemporary places of commemoration. These experiences inspired them to make this double CD, which combines their own songs with the biting humour of the Tommies. In Flanders Fields is the culmination of an engagement of many years, and brings together newly written songs, existing and first recordings from the Passchendaele Peace Concerts, and music from the "War to End All Wars".
