This is an extremely famous poem with a dramatic and memorable opening line. Six relatively short stanzas with a fairly simple rhythmic structure. The trick was to build some variety into it and avoid too much repetition but still not lose touch with that compulsive and insistent rhythm. Whether I have succeeded or not the viewer must judge for themselves. In any case thanks for listening.
This moving and powerful video not only captures the emotion that Dave has put into his performance, but also the story that this song is about, Sennacherib, the king of Assyria, with the words coming from poet Lord Byron.
