Roses of Picardy
Written in 1916 by Haydn Wood in conjunction with the famous lyricist Fred E Weatherly, ‘Picardy’ is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful songs of the First World War. I learned it from my father who sang it first in France and Belgium when he served in that war with the American Army. Incidentally, Fred E Weatherly collaborated with many other composers to produce such hits as The Holy City and Danny Boy.
