Singing Saturday: Ruthless or regal?

Recently, Richard III has been re-buried at Westminster.

Richard was the last Yorkist king of England, whose death at the Battle of Bosworth effectively ended the Wars of the Roses. He has become infamous because of the disappearance of his young nephews – the Princes in the Tower – and through William Shakespeare’s play ‘Richard III’.

In 2012, archaeologists began excavating beneath a carpark in Leicester, hoping to find Richard’s final resting place. The search captured the public’s imagination and the remains subsequently found were confirmed as those of Richard.
