Gassed Shell (Severe) by Andrew Harrison

Score and parts

For voice and large chamber ensemble.
Dedicated by the composer to his grandfather who was wounded by mustard gas at the Battle of Passchendaele in Ypres, Belgium on November 1st, 1917. He was a 22 year-old Gunner with the Second Australian Division’s V2A Heavy Trench Mortar Battery at the time. The title of the work comes from an entry in his casualty record describing his wounds. 

The text of Gassed Shell (Severe) intertwines entries from the V2A Heavy Trench Mortar Battery unit diary and Andrew's personal war record, with Wilfred Owen's sublime anti-war poem Dulce Et Decorum Est describing the mundanity of everyday trench life before moving to the terror and confusion of a gas attack.  Composed 2014
