Lady Dressed in White

I discovered this song cruising around you-tube. I can only find one recording of it. Can't find where I can buy it. I want it for my year 1-3 choir. It's beautiful. Anyone know it?

UPDATE: Found it!

Lady Dressed In White - Lin Marsh

Along the castle walls she walks.
As if she's floating through the air.
She never smiles she never talks.
Her sorrow seems to great to bear.



Oh lady dressed in white
are you waiting for your love?
He will come again to find you.
Oh lady dressed in white
are you doomed to walk these walls?
Must the spell forever bind you?

The mist it swirls around her feet.
Alone she paces to and fro.
Her trembling hands her sorrow show.
And as the morning light appears
she turns her head as if to go.
Her lovely face is streaked with tears.
Her story we will never know.

Oh lady dressed in white
are you waiting for your love?
He will come again to find you.
Oh lady dressed in white
are you doomed to walk these walls?
Must the spell forever bind you?

She will weep all alone.
So she leaves with a broken heart.
Her story we will never know.

  3. Oh, interesting. Wilkie Collin's Woman in White, perhaps. Or Elaine de Astolat? Or Miss Haversham?

  5. This is from a west end show. We sang it in our school choir. I thought it was a phantom of the opera song but can't find reference to it. I've always loved it.
