Written in 1994, For the Fallen was first performed in November 2003 by the choir of St Mary's Episcopal Church, Aberdeen, conducted by Geoffrey Atkinson. The text is taken from a well known poem by Laurence Binyon; it has recently come into the public domain which is why this piece is only now available for publication.

The setting is for soprano solo and SATB choir accompanied by organ. The first verse is sung by the soloist while verse two repeats the same text, this time scored for mixed voices.
