Description

Listen in dread to this dark poem that recalls the tragic aftermath of the brutal Battle of Worcester in 1651, when the blood of thousands of dead Scottish Highlanders and Lowlanders drenched the soil of the city and turned its rivers red. Thousands more - injured and traumatised - were cruelly shackled and imprisoned within the thick stone walls of the city’s cathedral and its ancient crypt, before Cromwell shipped the hapless survivors to forced labour in Barbados. None expected to see their homeland again. The glens of Scotland mourned for their lost youth as Hugh Peters (Cromwell's ruthless chief preacher - from Salem, Massachusetts) stalked among the prisoners. He was a man infamous for his cruelty.   


This poem was composed in the thousand-year-old crypt of Worcester cathedral.
