An animation created by 2P1, in 2019/20 before lockdown and finished by Kiera Nicolson, Gracie Gowans-Little and Zoe Goodhand in the last weeks of this session 2020/21.

The song is an old one and tells of the death of knight. What we don’t know is who killed him or indeed, who did his lady go off with.

Many thanks to Naomi Crame for editing the animation so artfully.
