The Georgia Boy Choir – A Red, Red Rose

The Georgia Boy Choir singing The Red, Red Rose, by James Mulholland. This performance was recorded on May 23, 2015, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, at the beginning of its China Tour during the wedding of Hannah Jordan LoRusso and Duane Griffith Rivaud White at Tenth Presbyterian Church.

If you’re not familiar with it "A Red, Red Rose" is a 1794 song in Scots by Robert Burns based on traditional sources, James Mulholland’s lovely SATB modern setting is very faithful to the spirit of the original. Enjoy :-)

Text: A Red, Red Rose

O my Luve’s like a red, red rose
That’s newly sprung in June;
O my Luve’s like the melodie
That’s sweetly play’d in tune.

As fair art thou, my bonnie lass,
So deep in luve am I:
And I will luve thee still, my dear,
Till a’ the seas gang dry:

Till a’ the seas gang dry, my dear,
And the rocks melt wi’ the sun:
I will luve thee still, my dear,
While the sands o’ life shall run.

And fare thee weel, my only Luve
And fare thee weel, a while!
And I will come again, my Luve,
Tho’ it were ten thousand mile.

Robert Burns
