New Setting of "In Flanders Fields" Available

Belgian composer Eddy Avonds has chosen to commerate the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the First World War (1914—1918) with a new setting of the well known poem, "In Flanders Fields" by Canadian John McCrae. A poet, doctor, author and artist, McCrae was a surgeon at the front during the Battle of Ypres and was burried in the Commonwealth War Graves only a few kilometres from the coast of Boulogne.

As a token of respect for all countries that lost fellow countrymen "In Flanders Fields", Eddy Avonds has written a new setting of the poem for 4-part choir (SATB) and is making complimentary PDF copies of the composition available to anyone interested.

To receive the PDF for use with your choir, please contact Carolyn Nielsen:
