Scarborough Fair (arranged for flute and piano by Jim Paterson)

"Scarborough Fair" is a traditional English folk song or ballad, which probably dates from the 17th century. A number of different versions of the melody and lyrics have appeared since that time, and the song has continued to provide inspiration to musicians in the 20th and 21st centuries. Simon and Garfunkel arranged the song and included it on their album "Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme" which is the second line of all the verses. This version of the song appeared on the soundtrack for "The Graduate", though the melody was also used in Fritz Lang's "Man Hunt" and Christopher Gunning arranged the melody as the theme for the TV series "Rosemary & Thyme". This arrangement for flute and piano can be downloaded as sheet music - score in PDF format (which can also serve as the piano part) and the Flute Part. Note that an oboe, violin or other instrument in C with the right range can also play the flute part. A harp would also be a suitable substitute for the piano part, or here is an alternative accompaniment for guitar. You can also download MIDI or MP3 files.
