Behind the scenes story: Trevor Gear with “This Britain Land of Mine”

“This Britain Land of Mine”    I guess this patriotic song speaks for itself. 

I originally wrote it as a poem to enter into a poetry competition, but I didn’t get around to submitting it so it languished forlornly in an exercise book for about 5 years. 

With the advent of the Brexit debate I decided to put the poem to music, and I liked that the song turned out to be something of an anthem extolling the virtues of this beautiful Country.
