In War

We were practising an absolutely marvellous piece last night using these words of Winston Churchill:

In war: resolution. In defeat: defiance. In victory: magnanimity. In peace goodwill.

The music is by Malcolm Archer (previously of St Paul's and now at Winchester college) responsible for music at the college chapel) and based on the Last Post. The choir and guest trumpeter will be singing it at the Remembrance Service in November and I really think it's going to touch people. I only wish I could find a recording of it to share with you!
