Music for Remembrance

Choirs around the world will be gearing up for the centenary commemorations in November of the end of the First World War. We've prepared a useful quick reference guide to save conductors and librarians spending hours searching for suitable material.

Don't hesitate to contact us if you need something that's not listed in our online shop. We can almost certainly get it for you.

Choral Highlights

From the monumental brilliance of Benjamin Britten's War Requiem and the heartfelt agony of Vaughan Willliams' Dona nobis pacem, through the end-of-epoch Englishness of Elgar to the simplicity of Douglas Guest, taking in sacred and secular texts, you're sure to find just the right piece for your choir.
