War Poem: ‘In Flanders Fields’

‘In Flanders Fields’ a world-renowned WW1 war poem was written by John McCrae, a Canadian soldier and physician after his close friend and fellow soldier died in battle.

In the video below Anthony Hutchcroft’s musical composition and vocals along with his wife Lee’s choreography, bring the words of the poem to life.

In Flanders Fields
In Flanders Fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

We are truly happy that Anthony’s song will be featured in our film.
