This piece was originally used on the RAF Massed Bands Concert Tour in 2002 when we were commemorating the role of RAF Bomber Command in World War II. It comprises the central theme of the fanfare 'Shining Sword' which was commissioned for the same commemoration.

In the concerts this music was played underneath a recitation of the Noel Coward poem ‘Lie in the dark and listen’ which he composed at night while listening to the sounds of RAF bombers flying overhead on their way to Cologne.
