The legend of the knight in the wood for bassoon and guitar


A mock mediæval ditty based on the following words:

In the days of King Anonymous the Good
a knight went out and got lost in the wood.
His lady wife she took another to troth
and firmly declared she did love them both.
The absent and the present knight
both shone in armour sparkling bright.
But my lady said “What is the good
of a knight who gets lost in the wood?”

The second verse reverses the instruments, so the guitar has the main tune.
