Tune of the Day: Agincourt Carol
Traditional English folk song
The Agincourt Carol (sometimes known by its chorus and central words, “Deo gratias Anglia”) was written some time in the early 15th century. It recounts the Battle of Agincourt, in which the English army led by Henry V of England defeated that of the French Charles VI in what is now the Pas-de-Calais region of France. The battle took place on October 25, 1415, so today marks its 600th Anniversary!
Thanks to Steve for suggesting this song!
