I had a really tough time finding this song online, so I thought I’d upload it with some pictures of the woman who it’s written about. Read on for a short biography (not written by me): Mary, queen of Scots was one of the most fascinating and controversial monarchs of 16th century Europe. At one time, she claimed the crowns of four nations – Scotland, France, England and Ireland. Her physical beauty and kind heart were acknowledged even by her enemies. Yet she lacked the political skills to rule successfully in Scotland. Her second marriage was unpopular and ended in murder and scandal; her third was even less popular and ended in forced abdication in favor of her infant son. She fled to England in 1568, hoping for the help of her cousin, Elizabeth I. Her presence was dangerous for the English queen, who feared Catholic plotting on Mary’s behalf. The two queens never met and Mary remained imprisoned for the next nineteen years. She was executed in 1587, only forty-four years old. By orders of the English government, all of her possessions were burned. In 1603, upon Elizabeth’s death, Mary’s son became king of England as James I. PS. Mary actually did wear a red dress at her execution to symbolize her martyrdom.

    The song of course is very beautiful…but along with the editing and your notes, the pictures which you chose to use for your movie truly captures the spirit of the music. Great Job!!!

    Personally I think if folks would dig deeper into the life she led maybe they would realize how history was probibly cheated by losing such a innocent heart in an era filled with jealousy and paranoia.

    Thanks For sharing such a moving tribute!!!

    My mother and I used to jam to this song back in the late 70’s. She would play the piano and I was playing my first drum kit. As a teenager I developed a passion for classical music that has stayed with me my whole life.
    This sure brings back memories of happy times.
    This was always my favorite Frank Mills piece and she learned it specifically for me.
