La Belle Dame Sans Merci from David Soden on Vimeo.

On the website, Sue Thomas writes that she had challenged students with computer science backgrounds to memorise a few stanzas of Keats. She was "very surprised when, a few days later, Dave Soden, one of those students, sent me this link. He had set La Belle Dame Sans Merci to music and performed it himself with a guitar accompaniment. The result? This haunting and memorable song." And it is.
