This short work for orchestra 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 systematic rhythms and force of the event and ends in celebratory fashion.
Instrumentation: 2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 4 horns, 3 trumpets, 2 trombones, bass trombone, tuba, timpani, percussion (4 players), harp, piano, strings.
Duration: 6 min.
Commission note: Commissioned by Australian War Memorial.. Commissioned by the Australian War Memorial, Canberra as a part of the 2018 Diggers' Requiem project
