“Barbara Allen” #Music

Download Mp3

I first heard this 17th-century folk song as a child. Believe it or not, it was part of an Elementary School book and CD set we often used in music class. The version on the CD was sung a cappella by a solo tenor voice. It was hauntingly done, but I found the song disturbing, because of the
lyrics.
While I still think the song tells a bittersweet story, it’s a beautiful melody that never left me.

I hope you enjoy hearing “Barbara Allen” on Oriole (soprano) recorder and zither!
