This short work was composed to commemorate the battle in La Hamel in northern France in July 1918 during World War One. The battle was the first occasion when the first AIF fought as an independent Australian army under the command of General John Monash. Although the battle was brief it was a turning point in the war because of the brilliant planning and strategies that Monash introduced. This piece captures the rhythms and systematic force of the event.
Instrumentation: Flute, 2 B flat clarinets, bass clarinet, alto & tenor saxophones, French horn in F, 3 trumpets in B flat, 3 trombones, tuba, 2 percussion, keyboard (or piano).
