Robert Burns poem set to music

Here is the wonderful Eddi Reader singing My love is like a red red rose:

Actually I think she would be good singing some of John's poems!
John....you did not live to see-
who we are because of what you left,
what it is we are in what we make of you.

I have her CD of Burns, Raphael. I bought it when I visited Alloway. She sings Red Red Rose and it is one of my favorite tracks. The entire album is excellent!

I would love that album- seen some of the tracks on you tube and she was on the radio last year talking about the album. I really love her music- she has a gorgeous voice.

Here's another video of hers I love:

By the way did you know that Eddi is 51? She doesn't look it at all and her voice is as good as when she started with Fairground Attraction in the 1980s.
