World Of Music Choir: Tuesday 24th November – ‘Black is the Colour’ led by Bella Hardy

Band on the Wall’s doors may be shut for a while but you can still take part in our fun music learning programmes from the comfort of your own home.

Tune in every Tuesday at 6pm (UK time) to join the World Of Music Choir online! Sing traditional and modern songs, harmonies and rounds. We learn by ear so you don’t have to read music, but if you would like the score it can be downloaded from this dropbox, where we’ll also upload an mp3 of the song to sing-along to after the session!

This live event is interactive; you can comment and ask questions, and the video will be available after the workshop.

To view and add live comments, open this video in YouTube.

Email learning@bandonthewall.org to become an official choir member!


This Week’s Song: Black is the Colour
(traditional)

Black is the colour of my true love’s hair
Her lips are like the roses fair
She has the sweetest smile, and the gentlest hands
I love the ground where on she stands

I love my love and well she knows
I love the ground where on she goes
And how I wish the day would come
When she and I can be as one

I’ll go to the Clyde and I’ll mourn and weep
For satisfied I never can be
I’ll write her a letter, a few short lines
And suffer death ten thousand times
