“I can see this rendition of one of Canada's fundamental building blocks
being featured on every occasion when we refer to our formative heritage,
the sacrifice of those who served and
Canada's role in the two World Wars,
and now Afghanistan.”
Peter Grauer – Author of “Interred with Their Bones”

Music: Composed by Anthony Hutchcroft
Poem: Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae (1915)

In 1997, Arthur Lee, a Toronto businessman, donated John McCrae’s war medals to the McCrae House museum after purchasing them at an auction for over half a million dollars!

When asked why he did it, Lee replied, “We don’t have very many Canadian heroes and we have very quickly forgotten the ones we do have. I just wanted John McCrae to be remembered.”

Setting John McCrae’s famous war memorial poem to music is another way of helping us to remember John McCrae and his iconic war memorial poem In Flanders Fields.

The central idea behind writing the In Flanders Fields song was to create a diatonic piece of music that was more memorable and would be more accessible to a larger audience by making it more accessible to listeners of all ages.
