Description

A Monmouth Overture was composed in 2007 for the Haberdashers' Symphonic Winds, as part of Philip Sparke's year as composer-in-residence at the Monmouth school. The work is based around the 15th century Agincourt Song, written in honor of Henry V's victory over the larger but outdated French army. Henry V was born in Monmouth in 1387, giving this wonderful overture its historical title. Bring a piece of history with a modern twist to your concert program. Dur: 4:30
