WWI Music Website

Here's another website that may be of interest: it lists song lyrics from the first world war, and has a list specifically of songs sung in trenches. Sarah Matheson's class presentation from a couple weeks ago concluded that music acted as an outlet for feelings and emotions about the war, and it's interesting to see in these lyrics the frustration and fear in particular that was present.

The question is: would Curzon be singing any of these songs? If they do act as an outlet for emotion, I don't think we would hear the stoic Curzon in a rousing rendition of "Forward Joe Soaps Army."
