This short work for acordion and wind band 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.
Instrumentation: Flute, 3 clarinets in B flat, 2 alto saxophones, tenor saxophone, baritone saxophone, 3 trumpets in B flat, 2 trombones, bass trombone, tuba, percussion (2 players), accordion, piano/organ.
Duration: 6 min.
