The Oxford Bach Soloists and a solo cellist perform an entirely new and haunting work, created by the composer Colin Riley with text by landscape writer Robert Macfarlane, which brings together fragments of Thomas’ collected poetry including lines found in his uniform pocket when he died 100 years ago in April 1917 on the Western Front - ‘Roads Shining Like River Up Hill After Rain’.
