This short and solemn SATB setting is most effective when sung at an unhurried pace. However, there's room for flexibility depending on the resources, acoustics and the occasion. It has been sung by small and large choirs alike at various Remembrance Day services and other occasions to commemorate those who have lost their lives during the course of public duty.

The setting was first performed by the choir of St Michael and All Angels, Mount Dinham at the Devon County Festival of Remembrance in the University Great Hall, Exeter. It was also sung by Exeter Cathedral choir during the civic service for Remembrance Sunday, 2014. The choir has also used this motet for an Armistice Day concert held in the same cathedral.
