Description

Commissioned by the Saint Louis Chamber Chorus, Artistic Director Philip Barnes. The peninsula at Gallipoli in Turkey is now marked with the graves of Australian and New Zealand infantry. Five soldier epitaphs have been included here, along with lines from poet Leon Gellert, a Gallipoli veteran. In the music we hear the undulating of the sea lapping the coastline, sad melismas complement the idea of “moaning”, following the epitaphs, a single voice sounds the bugle call, “The Last Post”, memorializing the soldiers who fell at Gallipoli. Duration: 5:00
