Over the next four years, 2014-18, Anna will be writing various musical responses commemorating the centenary of the First World War. The first of these is a Christmas carol which remembers specifically the ‘Christmas Truce’ of 1914, which saw men of both sides meet peacefully in the middle of No Man’s Land to exchange season’s greetings.
Choirs looking for a way of marking the start of WW1 in their programming for Christmas concerts may well be interested in this piece written specifically for performance in 2014. Whilst the carol is currently being composed, please get in touch to register your interest or to ask any questions. If you are interested in other music suitable for commemorating the Great War, take a look at Come Unto Me (SATB), Anthem for Doomed Youth (baritone solo) or get in touch regarding commissions, either vocal or instrumental.
