A Promise Of Peace Art

60 years on from the end of World War II is a time to remember, not a time to celebrate. 'A Promise Of Peace', the first solo album by Lee Saunders, reflects this sentiment in the strongest terms. It stands as a testimony to sober remembrance and not as a trophy signifying the hollow victory of the second world war.

The mood that dominates 'A Promise Of Peace' is one of foreboding. This is not the story of gallant Generals and Majors viewed with misty eyed nostalgia, it is a story of the everyday Tommy on the front-line, stranded at Dunkirk and the civilians enduring the utter horror of the Blitz.

The soundscapes created by Lee Saunders realize the death, degradation and futility of war, whether it be fifty years ago or in modern day Croatia, Iraq, Rwanda or Northern Ireland.

From the barking call to arms, Poland and Dunkirk, to the capitulation of France, the battle of Britain to the Blitz, Pearl Harbor to D-day, VE day to the dropping of the bomb. 'A Promise Of Peace' is a chronological story that is terrifying as it is dramatic. The music is ominous, harrowing and powerful. The message is not one left to speculation or interpretation.


After so many years of war, the music reflects on the hope and a promise of peace for the future - but it is a blood stained hope and an empty promise soon to be destroyed. If 'A Promise Of Peace' has a contemporary message, it is one of anti-right wing bigotry. Perhaps we will soon learn that war against fascism is the greatest and most righteous war to be fought - one that undoubtedly holds the sweetest prize.
