Guest, Douglas: They shall grow not old


They shall grow not old (1971)

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
we will remember them.

Words: from ‘For the Fallen’, Laurence Binyon (1869–1943)
Music: Douglas Guest (1916–96)
