Happed In Mist - Michael Marra

This is a beautiful song by Michael Marra about a character from the book Sunset Song called Ewan Tavindale. He is taken from his home and forced to fight in the first world war at the age of 25. During his time in the trenches he loses his mind and sees a vision of his fiance which he is drawn towards. The apparition appears in the opposite direction of the battle so poor Ewan is sentenced to death by firing squad and buried in a cowards grave. There were 306 British soldiers condemned to death by their own side for being "cowards". Lest We Forget.
