This is a song about the English defeat of the Spanish Armada in 1588. I came up with the melody for this song while experimenting with the Dorian mode. I fit the song to the chords available in the Dorian mode. Specifically, this song uses a i-IV-v chord progression of D minor, G major and A minor (as opposed to the i-iv-v progression typical of the D minor scale, which would include a G minor rather than G major, due to the B flat in the D minor scale).
