Yours and Yours
Yours and Yours is a heartfelt setting of a love poem by notable English writer, poet and cryptographer Leo Marks. This poem, written during the winter of 1943, was composed sincerely after a devastating personal loss and was used as a "code poem" during the Second World War in communication with French & British Special Agent Violette Szabo. This setting takes inspiration from the original spirit of Marks' affectionate memorial to his lost love and aims to honor its historical significance through subtle nods to the harmonic language of the period.
