The service was led by Father Richard Seabrook and included a variety of prayers for peace and actions of remembrance as well as many songs familiar to English people, such as God Save the Queen, Eternal Father and I Vow to Thee my Country.
Crescendo Choir sang the famous Italian song Va Pensiero, the famous lament for a lost homeland written by Giuseppe Verdi.

One highlight of the commemoration event was the singing of Bring Him Home, from Les Miserables, performed beautifully by Andrew Mirkwood.
