During the First World War, letter writing was a vital mode of communication between people and their loved ones on the front.
The letters that have survived to this day, are essential to paint a portrait of these horrible times but they are also a testament of the love and passion exchanged, the connections between families and of course were a great morale booster.
Love is one of the biggest themes in song writing - sometimes spurred on by the lyricists own experiences. These songs come in all genres from ballads to rap and are a “letter” for us to cling unto, in times or romance, joy, hardship, or grief. We often play a song again and again, touched by the voice, the melody, and the words.
