When you see the millions of the mouthless dead

author of text

The Scottish war poet Charles Hamilton Sorley was just 20 years old when he died in 1915 at the Battle of Loos. His harrowing poem When you see the millions of the mouthless dead, perhaps his ost famous work, is notable for its spare unsentimental style, and its stark uncompromising message. MacMillan’s setting was premiered in his home town Cumnock in 2015 on the centenary of Sorley’s death.
