An anthem for Europe

22nd October 2004 at 01:00
New from the Commonwealth War Graves Commission comes a web resource for upper primary and secondary pupils. The aim is to raise awareness about the work of the commission and the sacrifice made by thousands in the two world wars. Teachers' notes can be downloaded on a range of curriculum areas. As part of the music activities, pupils are invited to enter a competition by composing an "Anthem for Remembrance" using the inscription carved on violinist Hugh Gordon Langton's headstone (best known as the line, "Many a heart is aching", from Charles K Harris's song "After the Ball"). Individuals or groups of up to six can enter with a vocal or instrumental composition and the winning entry will be recorded and distributed to schools across the UK. The competition will be launched in December, so keep an eye on the website.
