This traditional Irish ballad gains new life in this beautiful, sensitive arrangement for three-part mixed voices. The green woods will ring again as kids leave the choir room singing this one. There is lots of repetition, yet diversity maintains interest. An added flute or recorder increases the beauty of the setting.
