"The Lost King of England" is a work containing words and music about King Richard III, his death at the battle of Bosworth, the remarkable discovery of his remains under a car park in 2012, his re-interment in Leicester Cathedral, and the changing reputation of this controversial and fascinating historical figure. The song is in a dramatic style, with orchestral and choral elements and with a medieval feel, aiming to capture the excitement and mystery of both the historical and the more recent events.
