Tune of the Day: Tho' You Leave Me Now in Sorrow

 by John Davy, arranged for two flutes

This piece was originally sung as a duet in the 1803 musical drama Rob Roy. The present arrangement for two flutes appeared in Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in Philadelphia in 1833. Although the piece is marked as “Scotch” in this collection, the music was actually written by English composer John Davy (1763–1824). It is true, however, that Davy drew heavily from familiar Scottish songs, which makes sense considering that the work was about the famed Scottish folk hero Rob Roy MacGregor.

Tune of the Day: Eli, Eli

 for solo flute

This haunting song, composed by David Zehavi in 1945, is based on a poem titled “A Walk to Caesarea” by Israeli hero Hannah Senesh. In 1943, at the height of World War II, she volunteered to go into Nazi-controlled areas in Europe to save Jewish lives. In 1944 she parachuted into Yugoslavia, and after staying with the partisans, she went to Hungary, where she was discovered and executed by the Germans. She is known both for her heroism and her poetry. The song is now considered one of Israel's unofficial anthems, and is the most-commonly played song on Yom HaShoah (the Holocaust Memorial Day) in Israel.

Thanks to Duncan for suggesting this tune!

Tune of the Day: Plainte en Dialogue by Montéclair

 for two flutes

This piece is the seventh movement of the second 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: Augen Geradeaus

 Traditional German tune

“Augen geradeaus” (“Eyes straight forward”) was an East Germany marching song.

Our company was marching through the city
And two dark eyes were laughing,
Beautiful, yes, she was beautiful.
She is our talisman,
We look to the left as much as possible.
But the commander ahead shouts:
Eyes straight forward!

Thanks to Hugo for contributing this tune!
