My Robin is to the Greenwood Gone


A lovely, unusual tune in the Dorian mode.

My Robin is to the Greenwood Gone is a great piece because you can play it fast or slow. Like many of Susan's arrangements, you can play the notation "as writ" or use the arrangement to launch your own version or improvisations. This arrangement is versatile because has 2 verses, one more simple to play than the other. You can mix up the verses, tempi, etc. and create a dramatic piece. ~Robin Stadnyk
