Dating back to the 1700s, this Scottish folk song was initially known as “O Waly, Waly.” This free setting of The Water Is Wide connects original music with the source melody in a continuous unfolding of melodic and motivic material. Players should pay special attention to dynamic shading, harmonic tension and resolution, and balance to allow the music to be fully expressive.
