Anzac Voices
Anzac Voices (ABC Classics 481 1626)
SKU: 16366
AU $27.22

Label: ABC Classics Cat. No.: 481 1626 Medium: CD No. Discs: 2

Anzac Voices is the story of Gallipoli, told by those who lived through it: regular troops, senior commanders, stretcher-bearers, signal operators, a nurse and a Turkish general, as well as Australia's official war correspondent.

The transcendent voice of music interweaves these accounts, providing a poignant musical reflection on this nation-defining event from composers including Ralph Vaughan Williams, Edward Elgar, Peter Sculthorpe, Ross Edwards and Frederick Septimus Kelly, whose Elegy was sketched behind the lines at Gallipoli.

Recorded between 1953 and 1990, the compelling and deeply emotional first-hand accounts drawn from the ABC Archives recall in graphic detail the circumstances and events of the Gallipoli campaign, from the innocence of enlistment to the horror of the landing and - for those who lived to tell their story - the bitter relief of homecoming.
