An impression in words and music of the old Scottish border town

Donald Campbell 's historical drama centres on the "Auld Alliance" between Scotland and France and one of the great wars between Scotland and England.

Fifteenth-century Scotland and Henry of England is making war in Europe. Desperate for help, France calls on Scotland to enter the fray and James IV is left with no alternative. At the head of a large army he invades England. Waiting for him at home in Scotland are the wives of the flower of Scots chivalry, and waiting for him in England - at a place called Flodden - is the Earl of Surrey with a rag, tag and bobtail force of English bowmen levied from the northern counties.
