They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old
Paul Drayton's setting of three stanzas from Laurence Binyon's poem 'For the Fallen' is poignant, dignified, and atmospheric. A serene and expressive refrain for unison voices (which the congregation may join in if desired) is interposed between evocatively turbulent passages for SSA choir. The accompaniment should ideally be played on the organ, but may be performed on the piano if organ is not available. Also available in a version for mixed voices.
