Bosworth Field and Fay Hield

Saturday, 9 February, 2013 0 Comments

It was the week in which the bones of King Richard III, one of the great villain of British history, were confirmed to have been unearthed in a carpark. The last Plantagenet monarch died at the Battle of Bosworth Field in 1485 and the recovery of his remains has thrilled the King Richard III Society, which now hopes “to secure a more balanced assessment of the king.”

On her last album, Looking Glass, Fay Hield sang not of King Richard III, but of King Henry. Her new album, Orfeo, contains a song called “Henry”. There’s something about that name, obviously. Anyway, here’s King Henry.
