This arrangement is a modern interpretation of the classic Scottish folk song. This was commissioned by the Bethlehem Central School District in Demar, NY for their 2014 District Choral Festival. Originally designed for two separate choirs, this published version is set up for full choir and solo voices. Even though some of the harmony and rhythmic elements are modern, the mood still fits well with a traditional choral ensemble. The piano accompaniment is supportive and add direction and energy to the arrangement. Though challenging, this arrangement is very accessible by most solid choirs.

Sop: A2 – G4
Alto: G2 – C4
