    Service to Honour the Staff and Volunteers of the Fire and Emergency Services

    sunday, 26 octoBER 2014

    26oct1In January 2014, bush fire swept through the Shire of Mundaring destroying property and causing the loss of one life. The fire began in Parkerville and moved rapidly to surrounding areas, including Stoneville and Mount Helena, aided by strong winds. Through the professionalism, good training, courage, and community spirit of career fire-fighters and Fire and Emergency Services personnel and volunteers alike, residents were able to return safely to the area by 16 January and view the damage and take stock.

    The 5pm Service celebrates the work all staff and volunteers of DFES do in maintaining the safety of the people of Western Australia.

    St George’s Cathedral Consort sings Evening Service in F by George Dyson, and Charles Villiers Stanford’s Beati quorum via.

    The Service is followed by a Reception, hosted by the Department of Fire and Emergency Services, to which all are welcome.

    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
