Karl Jenkins: For The Fallen

Books | SATB, Organ Accompaniment

Catalogue No: M060123146
Composer: Karl Jenkins
Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work

From the composer of The Armed Man a new setting of Laurence Binyon's iconic poem of remembrance. A simple but stirring anthem interwoven with the Last Post, the piece opens, as does the poem, in a mood of proud thanksgiving, and then builds towards a powerful and perfectly judged climax, monumental but not over-stated.

First performed at the Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall, London, 13 November 2010. Featured on the 10th anniversary edition of The Armed Man (EMI Classics CD). Orchestral materials available on hire. Suitable for intermediate standard choirs of all sizes.

      A piece that can be used at very many concerts. Especially poignant as the WW1 commemorations are important this year. But will always be a good piece to include in repertoire.

      Excellent delivery as usual. The piece is a beautiful arrangement of the poem in satc but it would be possible to use to the melodic line for a young choir.
