The Cockpit

 

Music: William Gardner

Words: Matthew Green

 

Having overcome a ruthless Viking onslaught, political betrayal by his own brother, a carousel of hideously debilitating diseases, and the indignity of childhood illiteracy, Alfred, King of the West Saxons, seeks intellectual salvation from Asser, a monk from Wales. Now, he has to contend with his greatest challenge yet, as the survival of all England hangs in the balance.
