Martin Aelred Colgan: My Love Is Like A Red Red Rose

My Love Is Like A Red Red Rose

Martin Aelred Colgan

I'm happy to cover a romantic and classic song today by introducing Martin Aelred Colgan's rendition of "My Love Is Like A Red Red Rose". Also known as the perfect wedding proposal song - no doubt why the song was released on 14th February.

Taken from the "Red Red Rose" album, it is inspired by the late Kenneth McKellar’s traditional version. This beautiful track is part of the Robert Burns' soundtrack, an album commissioned by James Campbell from the independent label Hummdrumm Records. Scottish tenor Martin Aelred Colgan spent 6 months producing both a soundtrack and a synopsis for a series about the poet and includes arrangements and original interpretations of Robert Burns' work.

For more loving vibes, the accompanying lyric video superbly embraces the sentiment of the song.
