Black is the Colour (SSAATBB) arr. Desmond Earley $2.75
Black Is the Colour (of My True Love's Hair) is a traditional folk song first known in the Appalachian Mountains region of the United States in 1915, but most probably originating from Scotland, as attributed to the reference to the Clyde in the song's lyrics. Desmond Earley has created a haunting arrangement of this beautiful melody suitable for college/university level choirs.
This arrangement features on the debut album recorded by the Choral Scholars of University College Dublin. 'Invisible Stars' is an enchanting and ground-breaking collection of traditional and Celtic-inspired Irish choral music. (Purchase CD)
