The sounds of trumpet, organ, drums and 40 powerful voices will fill the Anglican Church at Murwillumbah on the Sunday after Anzac Day when the community choir Chillingham Voices presents its concert Songs for Soldiers.

Centrepiece of the performance will be the mass for peace, The Armed Man by Welsh composer Karl Jenkins. Created for the millennium and dedicated to the victims of Kosovo, the mass has become an international sensation, performed in the Albert Hall, London, the Carnegie Hall in New York – and now in All Saints, Byalgum Road.

Choir director Harlie Axford and his singers, pictured in rehearsal on Thursday night, are fired with enthusiasm for the concert. ‘It’s the most moving music,’ he said, ‘and the choir has really risen to the occasion.’ The program also includes a selection of popular wartime songs.

Sunday April 29, 2.30pm. Doors open 1.30pm. Tickets $20, concession $15, children under 12 free.
