Album Notes
The boar lay slain is a song about Richard III who was defeated by Henry Tudor at the battle of Bosworth in 1485. Calumny was heaped upon him by the victorious Tudors who had a very weak claim to the throne of England. Over five centuries since the death of Richard III scholars and Ricardians are reclaiming the reputation of the last Plantagenet king of England.

The lyrics were written by Frances Quinn who also painted the artwork for the song. The music was composed by Ian Churchward. The song was recorded in Torquay at Rock Lee and Rainbow Starshine studios by Ian Churchward and Lord Zarquon as The Legendary Ten Seconds.

All profit from the sale of the song will be donated to the English scoliosis charity SAUK.

Other songs about the life and times of Richard III by The Legendary Ten Seconds can be heard on their album Loyaulté me lie.

A Brilliant Song about the Battle of Bosworth and its Aftermath
This is my favourite song so far. With lyrics and artwork by Frances Quinn and music composed by Ian Churchwood, it tells the story of how those who betrayed Richard III at the Battle of Bosworth found themselves out of the frying pan into the fire. As with the other Richard III inspired tracks by The Legendary Ten Seconds, it is in the English Folk Rock style with a touch of psycodelia and a mediaeval sound. I thoroughly recommend it.

The Boar Lay Slain
A very moving song. Lovely music and vocals. Beautiful illustration. Conveys to me that Richard's spirit was received by God. x
Definitely recommended
