Tune of the Day: Oh Say Simple Maid

 Traditional melody, arranged for two flutes

This flute duet is taken from Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, a collection published in Philadelphia in 1833. It is an arrangement of a dialog from the 1787 comic opera Inkle and Yarico, which was in turn based on a traditional English melody and song known as “O say, Bonny Lass”. As testified by manuscript collections of the time, this song was sung during the American Revolutionary War.

Tune of the Day: The Caledonian Hunt

 Traditional Scottish strathspey

This tune was composed by Sir Alexander Don, 5th Baronet of Newton Don, who in 1777, along with other local gentry, formed a Society called the Caledonian Hunt, which met twice a year. The annual event of the Caledonian Hunt was the famous Caledonian Hunt Ball, an event so fashionable as to be attended by the majority of gentry of Scotland, and not a few from England.

According to tune collector Francis O'Neill, this strathspey first appeared in Robert Ross's A Choice Collection of Scots Reels or Country Dances & Strathspeys, which was published in Edinburgh in 1780.
