My love is like a red, red rose

First line:
O my love is like a red, red rose
composer
traditional Scottish
arranger
author of text

 
The Scot poet Robert Burns devoted the last decade of his life to preserving Scottish culture, and this song was written as he walked the country in 1794. The text is written in a traditional Scottish lilt, and the melody is simple and traditional. This is another longstanding King’s Singers favourite, in this version written by our founding baritone Simon Carrington.
