Service (v/vv, a cap)


Told from the point of view of a wild service tree growing in the plains of the Somme, this is a lyrical folk song for remembrance with a genuine difference. As witness to both Agincourt and Waterloo in times past, the tree’s song is both a pastoral lament for the human as well as the ecological cost of war, yet through nature’s capacity for regeneration it lends us all hope for the future. Included in ‘1918 – The Untold Stories of the Great War’.

Also available in SA and SATB a cappella arrangements.

[Price is for 6 copies, including all instrumental parts, and performance licence.]
