Tune of the Day: The Young May Moon

 Traditional Irish air, arranged for two flutes

This flute duet is taken from Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in Philadelphia in 1833. The tune appears in a number of English and Scottish music manuscripts and printed collections of the early 19th century, but the earliest appearance of the melody was printed as “Irish Air from Robin Hood” in Thompson's Hibernian Muse (1786).

The title “The Young May Moon” comes from a song set to the tune by Thomas Moore and published in his Irish Melodies.

Tune of the Day: Eternal Source of Light Divine

 by G.F. Handel, transcribed for flute and keyboard

“Eternal source of light divine” is the first line of the Ode for the Birthday of Queen Anne, a secular cantata by George Frideric Handel. It was probably composed for a performance on 6 February 1713, Queen Anne's birthday, although there is no record of the performance having actually taken place.

On 19 May 2018, the piece was performed as the processional music for the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

Thanks to Dawn for suggesting this piece!

Tune of the Day: The Old Plunk

 Traditional American tune

This old-time tune is taken from Harding's All-Round Collection of Jigs, Reels and Country Dances, published in New York in 1905. The piece is called a “banjo jig”, a term which, while referencing the instrument, also describes a group of duple-time, syncopated, binary melodies that were often used for dancing.

Tune of the Day: Sarabanda

 from Trio Sonata in B minor, transcribed for two flutes

This Sarabanda is the third movement of Italian Baroque composer Arcangelo Corelli's Trio Sonata No. 8 in B minor, published in 1685. Like the preceding prelude and allemanda, this movement also starts with a combination of the three notes B, C-sharp, D, which provides a thematic connection.

Thanks to Mario for contributing this piece!

Tune of the Day: Capriccio in G major by Ruge

 for solo flute

This is the third piece from a collection of 17 Capricci for Flauto Traverso by Italian flutist and composer Filippo Ruge. Born in Rome around 1725, Ruge appears to have spent most of his professional life in France, and especially in Paris, where several of his compositions were published, ranging from small-scale chamber music to large-scale symphonic works.
