As Fraser says: It is seductive to regard the six wives of Henry VIII as a series of feminine stereotypes. Catherine of Aragon, Anne Boleyn and Catherine Parr possessed real intellectual ability,. during those fraught months of 1536, Jane Seymour's comportment was a model of discreet wisdom. I was pleasantly surprised by this book as it is well written and well researched and Antonia Fraser gives an insight into the women and the marriages of King Henry VIII without too much of the politics of the time. As I say I am not a fan of Tudor History but this managed to keep me interested and I learned a little something along the way.

Six Wives gave Wakeman his chance to break away from the other instrumental complexities that made up Yes and allowed him to prove what a driving force the keyboard could truly be, especially in full album form. More than just synthesized wandering, Wakeman astoundingly conjures up a separate musical persona by way of an instrumental ode to each of Henry VIII's wives through his dazzling use of the Mellotron, Moog, and Hammond C-3 organ. For example, Wakeman's fiery runs and fortissimo thwarting of the synthesizer throughout Anne Boleyn is a tribute to her feisty temper a.
