Love is a rose

composer
31 December 1907
author of text

 
The final song of Bridge’s first period is a lover’s trifle, Love is a rose; in spite of the text’s pointing out that love does not last, the music is cheerful enough. It is perhaps worth noting the song was written at the end of 1907; in October of that year Ethel Sinclair, a fellow pupil at the Royal College, returned from Australia, and in September 1908 she and the composer were married.
