Band of Brothers is a song written by Ken and Lisa Theriot for Ken Theriot’s album Human History. It is the first of three songs on this album about the Battle of Agincourt in 1415, the other two being Agincourt and To Serve The Lily. Some have lovingly referred to these songs as “Agincourt The Musical.”
From the liner notes for Band of Brothers:
It’s tough to improve on Shakespeare’s words, but he isn’t always easy to sing. We changed as little as possible from the “Crispin’s Day speech” to make it a song, hopefully one that comrades in arms will want to sing together.
Here’s a clip of the song:
