Music commemorating 100 years since the World War I Armistice on 11 November 1918, featuring the Canberra Brass Band in concert with the National Carillon, Canberra.

Fanfare for a New Age – G. Richards

Memorial Chimes – E. Elgar

Four years after the Armistice, Edward Elgar produced this composition for the opening on 22 July 1923 of the Loughborough War Memorial Carillon. That instrument was largest in England at the time, and the first grand carillon — a link to Belgium, where many servicemen from the local area (and Britain in general) perished during WW1.

Roses de Picardie – arr. H. Wood

War – R. Hanson – arr. T.P. Laue

The poem ‘War’ will be vocalised prior to the performance of Ray Hanson’s musical setting.

For the Fallen – K. Jenkins - arr. R. Childs

Für Alina – A. Pärt – arr. T.P. Laue
