Ravensdaughter - Rise up St. George
(Doherty/Richards)

'Rise up St. George' and 'St. George's Anthem' were written as part of a mummers play performed at a Midsummer's Festival held at St. Martin-in-the-Fields in 1980. The songs describe the death and rebirth of the year personified in the figure of the hero, St. George.
