Coventry Carol

Coventry Carol cover

Coventry Carol is a short story in the Torchwood universe, putting the events of Torchwood: Children of Earth into an historical perspective. Frobisher was a good man…

Herod, the king, in his raging,
His men of might, in his own sight,
All children young to slay.
Then woe is me, poor Child for Thee!
And ever mourn and pray,
For thy parting nor say nor sing,
Bye, bye, lully, lullay.

Coventry Carol - Trad. 16 Cent
