World Of Music Choir: Tuesday 9th March – ‘The Prickle Holly Bush’ led by Bella Hardy

Apologies for the audio glitches at the start of this video – bear with it, they do iron themselves out!

*If you would like to pay for choir sessions, please donate to our Young Musician Instrument Bursary Fund:*

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 notation 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 choir 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.

This Week’s Song: The Prickle Holly Bush


“Come, slack your horse,” cries George,
“Come slack it for a while,
For I think I see my father coming
Over yonder style.”

“Did you bring gold?
Did you bring silver to set me free?
For to keep my body from the cold jail wall
And me neck from the high gallows tree.”

“I’ve no gold,
I’ve no silver to set you free,
For I have come for to see you hang,
Oh, hang upon the high gallows tree.”

Oh, the prickle-holly bush, it pricks, it pricks,

Oh it pricks my heart full sore

And if ever I get out of the prickle-holly bush

I’ll never get in there any more.
