To mark the 500th Anniversary of the Battle of Flodden, this album is dedicated to the memory of all those who fell in battle, Sept 1513.

This album features the Songs and Music of Flodden, and includes a 'FREE' CD of Poetry and Prose of Flodden.

The poems and prose are read by BBC Radio Scotland presenter Iain Anderson, the actor John Shedden, and Alastair McDonald.

At the Battle Of Flodden an English Army crushed a Scottish Army. This was slaughter on both sides, on a terrible scale....

A fitting tribute to all who lost their lives that fateful day in September 1513.

The lyrics of The Flooers O' The Forrest below describes the grief of women and children at the loss of their young men:

I've heard the lilting, at the yowe-milking,
Lassies a-lilting before dawn o' day;
But now they are moaning on ilka green loaning;
"The Flowers of the Forest are a' wede away".

Dool and wae for the order sent oor lads tae the Border!
The English for ance, by guile wan the day,
The Flooers o' the Forest, that fought aye the foremost,
The pride o' oor land lie cauld in the clay.
