His kingdom for want of a horse

Post by jbuck919 » Thu Sep 18, 2014 4:58 am

As we await the results of the Sottish vote, which I know has nothing to do with Richard III, there comes this story which is a reminder of how brutal England's past could be. A king forced to fight personally at the head of his army. A monarch and an entire dynasty overturned by pure military conquest with no mercy shown.

There's nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself.
-- Johann Sebastian Bach
