In recent years, it has become the custom at St Jude's to sing Faure's "Requiem" on the eve of ANZAC Day. This year singers from the Southern Highlands under the direction of Christine Tilley will sing the "Funeral Sentences" from the Book of Common Prayer as set to music by the English composer Henry Purcell for the funeral of Queen Mary. They will also sing John Ireland's anthem, "Many Waters Cannot Quench Love". This anthem contains the line "greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends": a fitting commemoration for those who paid the supreme sacrifice in the theatres of war. Members of local community and service organizations are cordially invited to attend.
