Free download. SATB/piano – also can be sung a cappella – traditional – arr. Keith Murphy and Peter Amidon

You get pdfs of the piano/SATB score and the vocal score, and mp3 of the recording, and rehearsal track mp3s of each of the four vocal parts. Performed here by the Starry Mountain Singers (with Cora Kelly and Peter & Mary Alice Amidon).  Earlier in the year Peter heard Keith lead this song with some young fiddlers and singers, Keith accompanying them on piano. Peter was struck by Keith’s harmonization and did this SATB arrangement based on Keith’s harmonies, and later transcribed Keith’s piano part from the Last Night Concert performance. You get both the SATB/piano score and the vocal score.  This also works fine a cappella. Here are some other interpretations of this classic:


Wild Mountain Thyme
adapted by Francis McPeake

Oh the summertime is coming, and the trees are sweetly blooming,
And the wild mountain thyme grows around the purple heather,
Will you go, lassie, go.

And we’ll all go together, to pull wild mountain thyme
All around the blooming heather,
Will you go Lassie, go.

I will build my love a bower, by yon clear crystal fountain,
And on it I will pile, all the flowers of the mountain,
Will you go, Lassie, go.

If my true love, she was gone, I would surely find no other,
To pull wild mountain thyme all around the blooming heather,
Will you go, Lassie, go.
