The text to The Last Rose of Summer is taken from a poem by Irish poet Thomas Moore (1779-1852). He, along with Sir John Stevenson and several others, set a number of Moore's poems, or parts of them, to music. This circle of artists accounted for many traditional Irish songs from the nineteenth century. It is not known exactly who provided music for this popular setting, but the melody is quite attractive and familiar-sounding, not least because of its style and likeness to other Irish songs.
