"Give me a boat that can carry two and both shall row, my love and I."  From a rich, vibrant Celtic tradition comes the classic "The Water is Wide," lovingly crafted to evoke misty Scottish landscapes and rolling hills (you can almost smell the heather).   This unabashedly romantic trio for flute, oboe and piano is perfect for weddings, ceilidhs, Scottish weekend festivals, recitals and concerts.  For weddings, this arrangement is recommended as a prelude, unity candle accompaniment, a bridal march or a bridesmaid processional.  
       Because this melody has been used in multiple hymn settings, notably "The Gift of Love," "Though I May Speak with Bravest Fire" and as an alternate melody for "When I Survey the Wondrous Cross," this music is also effective for traditional church services and other worship events, as a prelude, postlude, an offertory, interlude, special music or silent prayer accompaniment.  9 pages of music (that includes separate pullout pages for flute and oboe).

This product was created by a member of ArrangeMe, Hal Leonard’s global self-publishing community of independent composers, arrangers, and songwriters. ArrangeMe allows for the publication of unique arrangements of both popular titles and original compositions from a wide variety of voices and backgrounds.
