Agincourt

 

 

 

 

Agincourt is a poem written and read by me through the eyes of one of the five hundred Welsh bowmen loyal to the king who took part in the battle of Agincourt. There are various figures for the total archers present but five thousand is typically given. Goose feathers were a good feather for the making of arrow flights. The battle is also infamous for the slaughter of the French wounded and French prisoners which occurred when King Henry thought another attack was iminent and they would take arms again.  To listen please click on the orange link below.  Hope you enjoy sharing this venture into what I call sound-imagery. Thank you for listening. Best wishes. Neil
