Tune of the Day: The MacMurrough

 Traditional Irish/Scottish jig

This jig, probably of Scottish origin, is printed twice in Harding's All-Round Collection of Jigs, Reels and Country Dances (1905): once as “The MacMurrough”, and once as “His Dudeen” (a dudeen being a short-stemmed Irish pipe made out of clay).

Tune of the Day: Study No. 23 in F major

 from “24 Etudes for Flute”

This study is the twenty-third piece from Danish flutist and composer Joachim Andersen's Twenty-Four Etudes for Flute, Op. 30. It begins and ends on long notes each introduced by a three-note arpeggio, while the heart of the piece is a bit quicker (un poco più mosso) and based on a sequence of sixteenth notes.

Tune of the Day: Rondeau by Naudot

 from Babiole No. 5 for two flutes

This “gracious” rondeau is the fourth movement of the fifth of Jacques-Christophe Naudot's 6 Babioles pour 2 Vieles, Musettes, Flutes-a-bec, Flutes traversieres, Haubois, ou Violons, sans Basse. The French term babiole humbly indicates something of little value or importance, a trifle.

Tune of the Day: Aria from Il Pastor Fido

 Attributed to Antonio Vivaldi

This Affettuoso is the third movement of Sonata No. 1 in C major from the collection of six sonatas titled Il pastor fido (“The Faithful Shepherd”).

This collection has always been attributed to Antonio Vivaldi until recently. According to modern scholars, however, in 1737 French composer Nicolas Chédeville made a secret agreement with Jean-Noël Marchand to publish a collection of his own compositions as Antonio Vivaldi's Il pastor fido. Chédeville supplied the money and received the profits, all of which was attested to in a notarial act by Marchand in 1749. This may have been an attempt to give his instrument, the musette (a sort of bagpipe), the endorsement of a great composer which it lacked.

Tune of the Day: Dumfries House

 Traditional Scottish jig

This jig was composed by John Riddell (1718–95), a blind amateur fiddle-composer of Ayr, and first published in his c. 1776 A Collection of Scots Reels, Minuets, etc.. Riddell was the composer of several popular airs, and an excellent fiddle player in his day, so much so that he was never without a pupil or an apprentice.

Tune of the Day: I've been roaming

 arranged for two flutes

This melody in rondo form (ABACA) was originally written by London-born composer and singer Charles Edward Horn (1786–1849). The lyrics are sometimes attributed to a George Sloane, about whom, however, very little is known. One source gives 1882 as Sloane's date of birth, but that seems highly improbable given that the piece was already known as “I've been roaming” well before that date.

I've been roaming, I've been roaming
Where the meadow dew is sweet,
And I'm coming, and I'm coming
With its pearls upon my feet.

The present arrangement for two flutes is taken from Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in 1833.
