The Agincourt Carol

The confident strut of this justly famous piece, articulating as it does in very direct (almost ballad-like) strophic fashion the prevalent mood of popular celebration at the king’s exploits, would have made it a singularly appropriate statement for his well-documented return to London after his great victory, alongside the giant, lion, antelope and larger-than-life figure of St George who leered down on the assembled populace from their lofty perches on London Bridge.
