A new piece of music will be played in unison by musicians across the world as a way of ensuring that the First World War continues to be remembered beyond its centenary.

Next month, people will gather to mark the 100 years since the end of the Great War.

The milestone anniversary is expected to contribute towards an increase in interest surrounding Remembrance Sunday, as millions fall silent for two minutes to remember those who died in the conflict.

But Aberdeen University lecturer, Neil McLennan, fears that the tradition could fade in the future.

And he has now partnered with Scottish fiddler Thoren Ferguson to create a “lasting form of remembrance”.
