Symphony in D (Major)

 

Major D. W. Boyd-Jones was famed for playing symphonies on his guitar whilst charging into battle. Boyd-Jones’ last performance was recorded on a fragment of a letter found near the site of his death:

 

‘…in a brief moment everything suddenly stopped. I became aware of the silence. Slowly, I heard a song being played on a guitar. I’d never heard the song before, but immediately thought of My Love. Gradually the music faded from my ears…’

 

Major D. W. Boyd-Jones, (b. 23 Jul 1881 - d. 23 Nov 1914) Blackstar Watch, 1914.
