Agincourt - Pope
Original poem and choral work by Anna Pope about the battle of Agincourt. Agincourt In 1415, England fought one of its most famous and bloody battles against France at Agincourt. England ostensibly emerged victorious, but the profound tragedy of the battle, and the painful and negative repercussions could never be considered a true victory. As with many celebrated victories, the long-term consequence was simply further struggle. Anna Pope's Agincourt was composed for and premiered at the Lumina Vocal Ensemble's England vs France concert in September 2007. It was partly inspired by the well-known anonymous 15th-century work The Agincourt Carol, a piece celebrating England's victory. However, the 21st-century Agincourt considers the famous battle from a different perspective: exploring the pain and tragedy of a world where human loss can be considered good.
