Red Is The Rose (TTBB, SATB, SSAA)

An arrangement of the well known Irish song that tells the tale of two lovers who are parted. The author of the words is unknown and the tune is “The Bonnie Banks o’ Loch Lomond”, or simply “Loch Lomond” for short, a well-known traditional Scottish song (Roud No. 9598) first published in 1841 in Vocal Melodies of Scotland.

The words that are often sung would appear to be a mis-heard version that has got handed down. (See some more details on the PDF of the score). This version uses the 1934 lyrics for the last verse.

There have been 2 very minor changes (a caesura and a single note change) which are incorporated in the PDF versions below.
