Does anyone have any information about the traditional Cornish song "The White Rose"? I've exhausted all my usual sources and apart from the fact that it's Cornish and traditional I can't find anything about it. I have traced a couple of CDs it has been recorded on but I'm really looking for info on the song rather than recordings. How old? Any provenance etc.

Afraid I dont know the song but I suggest you email Sue White at cornishsinger@hotmail.com. She sings Cornish songs, including the White Rose, and I bet she is the person to help you.

Hear it on Thursdays in August at the well Parc,Trevone followed by Little lize.Try the Newquay male voice choir to whom it was taken to by Rod Stirling during the early 70s and we all thank Mervyn Vincent.

According to this page (Google cached - the original is dead) the song's origin is "unknown"

I looked in Mike O'Connors book and Ian Marshall's. The song is in both but niether gives a clue to it's origin. Mike credits Mervyn Vincent for the version in his book and Ian Marshall says it sounds like a composed Victorian Ballad.
I'll keep looking.

I love the white rose in its splendour, I love the white rose in its bloom. I love the white rose, So fair as she grows. Its the rose that reminds me of you. This the chorus of the version we sing in "Elsie`s Band" Give us a shout if this is what you would like>¬
