The ballad of Barbara Allen, a story of a heartless beauty who scorned the love of a local lad and the tragic outcome for both, has been around since at least the mid-1600's and has never fallen out of the national songbook. Many place its origins in Scotland or the North of England, but it entered national ownership centuries ago. Reginald Redman was an extremely prolific composer and the founder and conductor of the BBC's West Country Studio Orchestra and the West Country Singers. In addition to the many light Orchestra pieces, suites and song cycles Redman wrote, he produced numerous arrangements of West Country traditional songs. This charming and effective setting of the sad tale of Barbara Allen is arranged for three equal Voices SSA and Piano accompaniment.
