72. Agincourt Carol

The Agincourt Carol (sometimes known as the Agincourt Song, the Agincourt Hymn, or by its chorus and  central words, Deo gratias Anglia) is an English folk song written sometime in the early 15th century. It recounts the 1415 Battle of Agincourt, in which the English army led by Henry V of England defeated that of the French Charles VI in what is now the Pas-de-region of France. The carol is one of thirteen on the Trinity Carol Roll, probably originating in East Anglia, that has been held in the Wren Library of Trinity College, Cambridge since the 19th century. It is featured in Laurence Olivier's 1944 film Henry V.
