An anthem for Remembrance-tide, adapted from the orchestral score, which, with instrumental parts, can be had from me freely on request. The drums and trumpets are essential to create the martial atmosphere of this piece, whose title seems quite ironic. Rupert Brooke’s poem depicts the enthusiasm of young men going to war in 1914. Like Sassoon in his early poems, he describes the spiritual cleansing afforded by the war. Unlike Sassoon, who lived to see the full horrors of war in 1916 and changed his view dramatically, Brooke died from septicaemia in 1915.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:


seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.


Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
