Henry V

My Shakespeare colleague was showing the end of Henry V to his class today; I could hear the music from “Non nobius Domine” from my office. Henry V was my first introduction to Shakespeare outside of Romeo and Juliet. I actually have the prologue’s monologue from the beginning of Act IV still mostly memorized. It was also the film that made me pay attention to acting and who was doing the acting; I started to seek out films by and with these actors in them. I even still notice when the music is composed by Patrick Doyle, who is the one singing at the beginning of this scene.
