My love is like a red, red rose

First line:
O my Luve’s like a red, red rose
traditional Scottish
author of text

Evoking the beauty of the Scottish Highlands, Latvian composer Ēriks Ešenvalds’ arrangement of the well-loved ballad My love is like a red, red rose combines the Irish tin-whistle with a rich choral sound. Despite its resemblance to other ballads of the time, this simple text showcases Robert Burns’ (1759-1796) genius and communicates the deep emotion of eternal love.
