Tune of the Day: Alice Gray

 arranged for two flutes

This popular ballad was likely composed around 1830 by Virtue Millard, about whom very little is known aside from the fact that she was the wife of a Mr. Philip Millard.

She's all my fancy painted her,
She's lovely, she's divine,
But her heart it is another's,
She never can be mine;
Yet lov'd I as man never lov'd,
A love without decay,
Oh! my heart, my heart is breaking
For the love of Alice Gray!

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

Tune of the Day: Allegro by Bellinzani

 from Recorder Sonata in D minor

This is the second movement of the twelfth sonata from Sonate a flauto solo con cembalo, o violoncello (“Sonatas for solo flute with harpsichord or cello”) by Italian Baroque composer Paolo Benedetto Bellinzani, originally published in Venice in 1720.

This movement has actually no tempo indication in the original manuscript, but it usually appears as an “Allegro” in modern editions.

Tune of the Day: Shandon Bells

 Traditional Irish jig

The earliest known appearance of this tune in print is in Francis O'Neill's collection Music of Ireland: 1850 Melodies, published in Chicago in 1903.

The tune is named after a bell tower in the city of Cork, Ireland. According to O'Neill, “No double jig ever introduced in Chicago met with such immediate popularity among musicians and dancers as Shandon Bells.” It seems that his source for the tune, fiddler Edward Cronin, had no title for it, so O'Neill came up with an original one.
