My Love Is Like A Red Red Rose


In honour of the Scottish poet Robert Burns, who is celebrated on the 25th January on “Burns Night”, here is a video I have produced of a musical setting to the verse “A Red Red Rose”. The poem was written in 1794 and the music was composed by Gordon Langford for brass band around 200 years later. This performance is by the Middleton Band and the cornet soloist is yours truly – yep, that’s me in the days when I could still play my cornet! The photographs are also mine, taken about five years ago when I was playing around with some flowers and my cornet one day. I hope you enjoy the finished product.
