Music of the Great War


Music of the Great War is a 5 year project using music from the time of the World War 1 to educate and encourage schools, colleges, town bands, and the wider public across the UK and the world to learn in a positive way about the events and the experiences of the troops involved from all sides and how music played its part.

Each year a short medley of music and songs from WW1 will be created and made available to bands to learn and then perform on Armistice Day (11th November) to commemorate the centenary of the war.

A Royal and Commonwealth Certificate from Buckingham Palace will be awarded to all schools and local community music bands across the Commonwealth who play this medley to commemorate WW1 on 11th November 2015.

The sheet music for the first medley called Songs of the Great War is now available for download.
