This ever-popular folk song is given an unusual and harmonically colorful setting by Virginia Croft. The pesante style and careful way every section is given the opportunity to play the lively and memorable tune is very effective and serve to make this a piece that will be fun and satisfying to play.
Gypsies and stringed instruments have had a long association. This lively tune, so well suited for young string orchestras, is an old Scottish ballad which relates the tale of a medieval lady choosing to forsake her noble status for the excitement of life with gypsies. The pesante feel of this piece and its ancient modal harmonies hsould interest your young performers and add spice to your concert performance. The piano score is well within the capability of a student piano. The words of the original folk song are: "Three gypsies stood at the castle gate Inquiring of my lady - O. One sang high and another sang low and she's gone with the wraggle-taggle gypsies - O.".
