Music for a Holy Place: Beaumont-Hamel - Music by Gary Johnston (
)
Written as a commemorative piece for the centenary of the battle of Beaumont-Hamel, July 1, 1916. Of the nearly 800 men who took part in the Allied offensive only 68 were to answer roll call the following day. Opening with the toll of bells this solo piano piece has a simple, yet haunting, Celtic-inspired melody played over a military drum-like drone.

What a beautiful, contemplative piece. I can't wait to play this! :)

Truly beautiful in a serious, reverent, and gorgeously sad way. I love the opportunity for this piece to help students bring out the melody over the accompanying beat, but more than that, this one has a story... one perfectly reflected in the care and attention in the creation and arrangement of the music.
