5.0 out of 5 stars life and death of King Richard in song, 7 Feb. 2015
By:  StoneLord1 "J.P. REEDMAN" (England) 

A great idea, chronicling the life and death of King Richard and ending with the finding of his remains in a carpark in Leicester. Interesting blend of rock, folk and medieval-sounding music.


5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific!, 20 Dec 2013
By jazzycat "Gloucestershire Girl" (Gloucestershire, England)

If you like good folksy music with a modern slant, excellent production, originality and King Richard III, here's where to find all four. As a Ricardian, I wondered what this could possibly be like, but the word is SUPERB. I have played the whole thing a number of times already, even though I only bought it this morning and it's not yet even 1 p.m.  I must also congratulate whoever created the excellent cover art.

Definitely a good buy that conjures the period and charisma of Richard III, and I have no hesitation at all in recommending it.
