A World Requiem

A World Requiem, Op. 60 is a large-scale symphonic work with soloists and choirs by the British composer John Foulds. Written as a requiem and using forces similar in scale to Gustav Mahler's Eighth Symphony, the work calls for a full symphony orchestra, soloists, massed choirs including children's choirs, offstage instrumentalists and an organ.

Foulds wrote the work between 1919 and 1921, and conceived it as a memorial to the dead of all nations in the wake of the First World War. The text (in English), assembled by his wife Maud MacCarthy, to whom the score is dedicated, is not liturgical, though it uses sections of the Requiem Mass plus several other Biblical passages as well as excerpts from John Bunyan's The Pilgrim's Progress, a poem by the Hindu poet Kabir and a few passages she wrote herself. There are 20 movements arranged in two parts of 10 movements each, though some movements are quite brief.

It was premiered under the auspices of the Royal British Legion on Armistice Night, 11 November 1923 in the Royal Albert Hall by up to 1,250 instrumentalists and singers; the latter were called the Cenotaph Choir. The soloists were Herbert Heyner, Ida Cooper, Olga Haley and William Heseltine. The programme-book for that occasion proclaimed on its cover that the work was 'A Cenotaph in Sound' and it is likely that Foulds wished to present his work as a musical equivalent of the Cenotaph recently erected in Whitehall and designed by his friend Sir Edwin Lutyens. The performance brought Foulds such popular acclaim that after his death Maud MacCarthy was able to publish a book devoted to the positive responses to the work, though critical reaction was mixed. The work was repeated from 1924 to 1926 and constituted the first Festivals of Remembrance.

The vocal score was published by W. Paxton & Co. Ltd., London, whose business was eventually absorbed by the music publishers Novello & Co. During the period when the work was being performed in the 1920s, Foulds introduced various revisions and modifications.

Having lain neglected for eighty years, the BBC in association with the Royal British Legion undertook a revival of the work, performed at the Royal Albert Hall on 11 November 2007. The BBC Symphony Orchestra was joined by soloists Jeanne-Michèle Charbonnet, Catherine Wyn-Rogers, Gerald Finley and Stuart Skelton and the BBC Symphony Chorus was joined by the Crouch End Festival Chorus, Philharmonia Chorus and Trinity Boys' Choir and conducted by Leon Botstein.The concert was broadcast live on BBC Radio 3 (and was streamed online from their site) and was also recorded for later release by Chandos Records. The Chandos recording was issued in January 2008.

The German premiere was held on 2 November 2014 in Wetzlar Cathedral.

Australian honours system

The Australian honours system consists of a number of orders, decorations, and medals through which the country's sovereign awards its citizens for actions or deeds that benefit the nation. Established in 1975 with the creation of the Order of Australia, the system's scope has grown since then and over time has replaced the Imperial/British honours system that previously applied to Australians. The system includes an array of awards, both civil and military, for gallantry, bravery, distinguished service, meritorious service, and long service. Various campaign and commemorative medals have also been struck. New honours can be awarded at any time, but conventionally most new honours are awarded on Australia Day (26 January) and on the Queen's Birthday (as observed in the eastern states, that is, on the second Monday in June) every year, when lists of new honours are published.

Bill Heseltine

William "Bill" Heseltine was a three-time Australian cycling champion who while competing for Australia, won the 10 mile scratch on the track at the 1950 British Empire Games (now Commonwealth Games) in New Zealand.Known as the country champion from his home state of Queensland, he took out the 3 mile state title in 1949 in a record time of 4 minutes 51.4 seconds, a feat that earned him a shot at the Australian championships. In the 10 mile Australian race, Heseltine and fellow Queenslander Ken Caves put a lap on the rest of the field, allowing them to go head to head for the title. With a lap to go, Cave lead, but Heseltine joined Cave with 300 yards to go. It wasn't until the last 50 yards that Heseltine hit the front. He went on to beat Cave by a bike's length. He was then selected for the Empire Games in February 1950, where he won the Gold Medal in games record time.Heseltine went on to win a large number of Queensland titles as well as 3 Australian Championships. Bill Heseltine missed a real chance at an Australian call up for the 1952 Olympic team when he suffered an horrific bike smash.

W. H. Mudford

William Heseltine Mudford (1 March 1839–18 October 1916), known as W. H. Mudford, was a British newspaper editor.

The son of William Mudford, a newspaper editor, W. H. Mudford went to work for The Standard newspaper in London around 1860. He rose to become editor himself in 1871, and in owner James Johnstone's will, his tenure was made permanent, until his death or resignation. He made The Standard the second best-selling morning newspaper, after The Times, printing 250,000 copies per day by the mid-1880s. However, he was reluctant to update the paper's style, and during the 1890s it lost sales to new papers such as the Daily Mail. He resigned in 1899, and retired to Wimbledon Common.
