Band of Brothers – A Song For St. Crispin’s Day

Today, October 25th, is St. Crispin’s Day. This might not mean much in 2014 if it had not been for Mr. Shakespeare and his play, Henry V. King Henry makes a rousing speech before the Battle of Agincourt whose words entered the English-speaking popular culture and stayed. We still hear references to it today. Whenever you hear the term band of brothers, you have Shakespeare and his Crispin’s Day Speech to thank.

A few years ago, during the creation of Ken Theriot’s album, Human History, Ken and Lisa Theriot set out to create a singable version of the speech, and the result was the song entitled, not surprisingly, Band of Brothers

Here is the studio version of the song:

Below is a link to iTunes, where you can purchase the album “Human History,” or any individual song:

    Hey Ken, Adelaide,

    It is the second weekend in October. Event and feast would be comped, + crash space.

    Interested?

    Hi Samm. I would say yes. But that is a bit too far to plan for us at this point. There are too many variables in play for us to commit. How soon would you/he/she need to know?

    Cheers,

    Ken
