Label: Right Recordings

Elegy to the War House composed by Major Craig Hallatt, Director of Music and Officer Commanding The Band Of The Household Cavalry. The piece is performed by The Guards' Chapel Orchestra. The EP also features tracks by The Soldiers and The Treorchy Male Choir. This EP marks the unveiling of The War Horse Memorial on Friday 8th June. This will be the first national memorial dedicated exclusively to the millions of British, Allied and Commonwealth horses, mules and donkeys lost during World War I. The memorial is a larger than life bronze horse created by British sculptor Susan Leyland. It will stand on an inscribed stone plinth, close to Ascot Racecourse, which is supporting the project. In addition, a collection of significant WW1 artefacts will be placed in an authentic brass shell casing (which was discovered on the Somme), and locked away in the plinth, adding greater poignancy to this wonderful epitaph.
