The Forgotten

This setting of the hauntingly beautiful ANZAC poem, ‘The Forgotten,’  written by the Australian poet

Charles Harpur (1813-1868) was composed in 2012:

He fought for his country, the star of the brave,poppy post

And died for it’s weal when to die was to save.

And wisdom and Valour long over him wept,

And Beauty, for ages, strewed flowers where he slept.

And the bards of the people inwrought with their lays

The light of his glory, the sound of his praise…

Within a lone valley a tomb crumbles fast

And the name of the sleeper is lost in the past.” Charles Harpur

This choral piece is available for SA & Piano;  SSA & piano or SATB & piano. It is suitable for secondary school choirs & adult choirs. ‘The Forgotten’ is appropriate for ANZAC day and memorial services, school choral concerts, remembrance day events and eisteddfods.
