Anthony Hutchcroft's IN FLANDERS FIELDS a celebration of poetry in song
In November 2006 Mission BC songwriter Anthony Hutchcroft composed new music for his adaptation of “IN FLANDERS FIELDS,” the iconic First World War poem written by Canadian Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae. A few months later Mr. Hutchcroft went into the studio and recorded his vocal performance of the song. The beautiful video here is directed and choreographed by Lee Kwidzinski and performed by the dancers from the Fraser Valley Youth Dance Troupe.
The result is a haunting and spectacular performance that takes McCrae’s poem from dramatic words to a stirring and uplifting musical anthem.
