Music of the Great War is a 5 year project using music of the period to educate and encourage schools, colleges, town bands, and the wider public across the UK and the world to learn in a positive way about the events and the experiences of the troops involved from all sides and how music played its part.

Each year a short medley of music and songs from WW1 will be created and made available to bands to learn and then perform on Armistice Day (11th November) to commemorate the centenary of the war.

Go to the “Medley” page for details on  how to download the sheet music or click the links at the bottom of this page. As you can see below we have letters of support from some significant people!


I’ve read and listened! What you have accomplished is awesome!! I am amazed and delighted!!!
