Tune of the Day: Sarabande by Montéclair

 for two flutes

This sarabande is the seventh movement of the fifth of six Concerts à deux Flutes Traversières sans Basse by the French Baroque composer Michel Pignolet de Montéclair. Here the French word concert is a synonym of “suite”, and has nothing to do with the Italian concerto.

Tune of the Day: Post Horn Waltz

 Traditional tune, arranged for two flutes

This version for two flutes of the traditional Post Horn Waltz is taken from Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in Philadelphia in 1833. The arrangement is attributed to a “Nicholson”; probably English flutist and composer Charles Nicholson (1795–1837), the author of a number of tutors for flute-playing which were published throughout the 19th century.

Tune of the Day: The Sun, Whose Rays Are All Ablaze

 from “The Mikado”, arranged for flute and piano

This song is sung by Yum-Yum at the beginning of Act II in Gilbert and Sullivan's 1885 comic opera The Mikado.

The Sun, whose rays are all ablaze with ever-living glory,
Does not deny his majesty — he scorns to tell a story!
He won't exclaim “I blush for shame, so kindly be indulgent.”
But fierce and bold, in fiery gold, he glories all effulgent!

I mean to rule the earth as he the sky—
We really know our worth, the Sun and I!

Thanks to Phil for suggesting this piece!
