Tune of the Day: The Flag Dance

 Traditional Scottish jig

The earliest appearance of this lively jig in print is in John Watlen's Celebrated Circus Tunes, published in 1791. The title of Watlen's volume refers to the Royal Circus in Edinburgh, an extension of Phillip Astley's London-based Royal Circus. The Flag Dance, or most likely any number of dances with flags, seems to have been quite popular at the time.

Tune of the Day: Vivace by Schultze

 from Sonata for two flutes in E major

This Vivace is the fourth and final movement of a Sonata in E major for two flutes or recorders by a German composer named Johann Christoph Schultze. This is not to be confused with the apparently unrelated composer of the same name who was born in 1733, as this sonata was first published in Hamburg in 1729.

Tune of the Day: Adagio by Chédeville

 from “Il pastor fido” Sonata No. 5

This is the fifth movement of the fifth of the Il pastor fido sonatas, first published in 1737 and traditionally attributed to Antonio Vivaldi. The actual composer, Nicolas Chédeville, made a secret agreement with Jean-Noël Marchand to publish a collection of his own compositions as Vivaldi's Op. 13. Chédeville supplied the money and received the profits, all of which was recorded in a notarial act. This may have been an attempt to give his instrument, the musette, the endorsement of a great composer which it lacked.

Tune of the Day: Look From Thy Lattice Love

 traditional song, arranged for two flutes

This flute duet is taken from Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in 1833. The piece appears to be an adaptation of a Spanish song known as “La Cachucha”, which had previously appeared in the Musical Gem, published in London in 1831.

Look from thy lattice, love, look! and see,
O'er the dark waters shining,
See where my bark draws near for thee,
Hasten, for day is declining,
Softly afar, Dies the dim ray, love,
Lo! The night star, Hither away, love,
Hither away! Ev'ry vain fear Pry'thee allay, love,
Freedom is here, Hither away, love, Hither away!
