The Diggers’ Requiem is a moving and beautiful Australian tribute to mark the end of World War One a century ago and is dedicated to the memory of our Defence Force personnel and civilian victims. Including music written by seven of Australia’s finest living composers, this prelude concert will be performed in St Paul’s Cathedral Melbourne on Wednesday, 26 September. The Diggers’ Requiem was co-commissioned by the Australian Department of Veterans’ Affairs and the Australian War Memorial, with the Brass concerts supported by the Australian Defence Force.
The concert will feature 12 works accompanied by projected historical imagery. These brass concerts have been written for trumpet, accordion, soprano, mezzo, tenor, baritone, bagpipes and brass band and will be performed by leading soloists
The duration will be 80 minutes with no interval.
We welcome all Australians to join us for this special Brass tribute to those who sacrificed so much a century ago.
