A Capella Singers and instrumentalists will perform Karl Jenkins' moving work which was commissioned by the Royal Armouries Museum for the Millennium celebrations. It was dedicated to victims of the Kosovo crisis and is an appropriate accompaniment to a time of reflection at Anzac. The emotional power of this work frequently movies audiences to tears.

In addition to extracts from the Ordinary of the Mass, the text incorporates words from other religious and historical sources, including the Islamic call to prayer, the Bible (e.g. the Psalms and Revelation), and the Mahabharata. Writers whose words appear in the work include Rudyard Kipling, Alfred Lord Tennyson, and Sankichi Toge, who survived the Hiroshima bombing but died some years later of leukaemia.
