Product details

Written to 7 poems of the late Leon Gellert (1892-1977), who was a Lance-Sergeant of the 10th Battalion, landing at Gallipoli on 25 April 1915.
There is a separate 2-3 minute Postlude (probably only suitable for a male singer) - 'The Husband'. The cycle traverses scenes and emotions of the campaign from the landing, through battle, to the leaving when the sore is empty save for the dead.

Published by: Australian Music Centre — 1 facsimile score (24p. -- A4 (portrait))

Difficulty: Advanced — Wide-ranging vocals, good technical proficiency, demanding musically & vocal stamina

Duration: 16 mins

Contents note:

The Attack At Dawn -- The Rendezvous -- These Men -- Sights -- Armageddon -- The Cross -- The Last To Leave -- The Husband (postlude to the cycle).

First performance by Ayse Gӧknur Shanal, Patrick Keith — 9 Apr 15. Paddington Uniting Church, Sydney

Includes postlude 'The Husband' (for tenor voice) which is also available separately.

The composer notes: The style is by turns dramatic and lyrical. It is also essentially melody driven. The work is sung-through for the entire 16 minutes, but each poem sits individually from the others connected by short codas and/or introductions from the piano.

Typeset edition.
