    Solemn Requiem for Australia’s WWI Dead

    sunday, 2 NOVEMBER 2014

    ‘For the Fallen’

    During the period 4 August 1914 to 11 November 1918 there were 59,357 deaths. On average, 38 members of the Australian armed forces died per day during the 1,560 days of the war. At 64.8 per cent, the Australian casualty rate (proportionate to total embarkations) was among the highest of the war.
    - Australia War Memorial

    2nov1In this First World War Centenary Year it is fitting that all Australians should pause to recall the sacrifice of almost sixty thousand Australians who fell in defence of the freedom of the world during the four years of the Great War.

    St George’s Cathedral Consort sings the Requiem of Gabriel Fauré (1845-1924), whose own son served in the War.

    The outbreak of the First World War almost stranded Fauré in Germany, where he had gone for his annual composing retreat. He managed to get from Germany into Switzerland, and thence to Paris. He remained in France for the duration of the war. Fauré did not recognise nationalism in music, seeing in his art "a language belonging to a country so far above all others that it is dragged down when it has to express feelings or individual traits that belong to any particular nation."

    This service is part of a series of Cathedral events to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the beginning of the First World War.

    Time: 5.00pm

    Remembrance Service & Long Table Dinner

    sunday, 9 NOVEMBER 2014

    Remembrance Service & Long Table Dinner ‘Pack up your Troubles’

    9nov1The Armistice marking the end of the First World War was the November event which caused Defence Sunday (or Remembrance Sunday) to be observed throughout the world in honour of all those who gave their lives in war.

    In this 100th anniversary year of that Great War, we keep Remembrance Sunday with a solemn service at 5pm in the Cathedral followed by a long table dinner in the adjacent Burt Hall, which is a memorial to the West Australian brothers Francis and Theodore Burt who were killed in action in France in WWI.

    The solemn service is sung by the renowned St George’s Cathedral Consort and also includes Last Post and Reveille and the Ode. The historic Villers-Bretonneux Cross, constructed on the battlefield in France, forms the visual focus in the Cathedral.

    At the ‘Pack up your Troubles’ Dinner we are reminded of the camaraderie and good humour which Western Australians sustained while their loved ones were away at War, despite the austerities of the time.

    9nov2Great WWI songs are performed by Perth celebrity cabaret and opera singer Courtney Pitman, accompanied by Joseph Nolan, St George's Cathedral Organist and Master of the Choristers. Community singing includes wartime favourites such as: Pack up your troubles in your old kit bag, Keep the home fires burning, and It’s a long way to Tipperary.

    Tickets for the dinner ($60) can be purchased from St George’s Cathedral Office (9325 5766 or info@perthcathedral.org). BYO wine or beer. Groups of four or more may have reserved seating. Others unreserved. All profits go to RSL-WA.
