Other Information

This arrangement was written for the Atherstone Choral Society to perform in a concert on 1st November 2014. The songs used are: Oh we don t want to lose you; Au revoir but not goodbye, soldier boy; It s a long way to Tipperary; Mademoiselle from Armentieres; There s a long, long trail a-winding; Keep the home fires burning; Over there; Pack up your troubles in your old kit bag. The total duration is about 6.5 minutes. The medley is effective with just the piano accompaniment found in the vocal score or, alternatively, the small ensemble scoring can be used to add extra colour.

Note to choirs: If you would be interested to try the piece out just download the vocal score and make copies as necessary. If you would like to try the ensemble version email me to request a score and set of parts (again downloadable as PDFs).There is no charge for this but if the piece is subsequently used in a public concert I would appreciate notification of the event and also a one-off nominal fee for the use of the music of 30.00 pounds for the voice/piano version or 50.00 pounds for the ensemble version, cheques payable to: Robert Ramskill, 142 Woodside Avenue, COVENTRY, CV3 6BE

Comment on World War One medley:

The evening rounded off with a magnificently constructed suite of World War one songs that were skillfully arranged by Mr. Ramskill. These were greatly appreciated by the capacity audience and many joined in with enthusiasm." David Fisher
