Words by Robert Allan (1774-1841) based on the poem by Robert Burns

Music Composed, Performed & Produced by David Paul Jones

Written and recorded in my home studio during Lockdown, March - April 2020. This song is an example of my love for contemporary reimaginings of traditional folk songs. I feel the recording remains faithful to the sentiments of the original poem but brings it up to date by combining my vocals with a digitally-programmed virtual chamber ensemble. The recording and sheet music is currently unpublished. I am aiming to perform this work live to coincide with a digital release, when times allow, alongside my song Horses, which was written at the same time as Leezie Lyndsay.
