This piece has a lovely and moving feel. I can hear New Testament references. The spoken content regarding "A War That Lasts A Hundred Years" offers a distinct warning. I love the utilization of the instruments; specifically the dulcimer which comes to the fore near the close of the piece.

    - Rich Goldin

This is a hard subject to cover. You do it well. I really like your spoken words. This puntuates the power of the song lyrics. The instrumentation is interesting, especially the marching drums.

Lyrics

Through the forest deep and dark
The brave knight he came riding
On his dappled steed he rode
Five days from the fighting

He wore his sweetheart's token fair
and bore his sword and shield
glories war he swore to wage
until his foes did yield

Refrain
A Hundred Years War it did rage
o'er religion and sweet France
thousands on a bloody field
as king and peasant both were killed

Five years and a day did pass
'ere the knight came home again
hobbling on a rough hewn cane
his face was scared, his legs were lame

Killed by fever and lost hope
his love lay in her grave alone
putrid wounds and the Black Death
left him crippled and bereft

Refrain

Bridge...spoken

A war that lasts a hundred years
with millions killed and maimed

A war that lasts a hundred years
must never come again

A war that lasts a hundred years
what villain would propose it?

A war that lasts a hundred years
good men must all oppose it

A war that lasts a hundred years...must never come again, must never come again.

Through the forest deep and dark
the brave knight he came riding
on his dappled steed he rode
five days from the fighting
