A 5 year project, Music of the Great War, was launched on November 11th with Rob's arrangement Songs of the Great War.

The featured songs include It’s a Long Way to Tipperary, For King and Country, Goodby-ee, Oh it’s a Lovely War, Hello – Who's Your Lady Friend?, Mademoiselle from Armentieres, Take Me Back to Dear Old Blighty, It’s a Long, Long Trail a-Winding, If You were the only Girl in the World, Pack Up Your Troubles and Old Soldiers Never Die , while several others make fleeting appearances as countermelodies.

The aim of the project is to use music from the time of WW1 to educate and encourage schools, colleges, town bands, and the wider public across the UK and the world to learn in a positive way about the events and the experiences of the troops involved from all sides and how music played its part.
