Ensemble: SATB unaccompanied
For the Fallen was originally written as a unison anthem for the Junior Choir of Prebendal School, Chichester. It was first performed in Chichester Cathedral in November 2011, with piano accompaniment. This has been simply arranged for SATB choirs and is a setting of Laurence Binyon's famous text. The final "we will remember them" is meant to remind the listener of a fragment of The Last Post.
