The Fall and Rise of Edgar Bourchier and the Horrors of War is a collaboration album by Mick Harvey and Christopher Richard Barker. The album examines the work of a long forgotten World War I poet, Edgar Bourchier, through his poetry as put to music in a concept album. Its release coincides with the 100th anniversary of the Armistice, on 11 November 2018. The works of this long forgotten war poet arrive in 2018 indirectly from the trenches of the Western Front. The wider narrative takes us from Bourchier’s birth in Warwickshire in 1893 through to his final school days and then his senseless death at Passchendaele in 1917, aged only 24.
