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!

Tune of the Day: Within a Mile of Edinburgh Town

 arranged for two flutes

This duet is taken from Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in Philadelphia in 1833. The air is usually attributed to English organist and composer James Hook (1746–1827), although some sources attribute it to Henry Purcell or to Jeremiah Clarke.

This tune has become famous as the vehicle for a song of the same name by English writer Thomas D'Urfey (1653–1723), which “is a noted example of those composed by English wits in imitation of the Scots Manner, and which were, with little discrimination, accepted as Scots songs in Scotland itself.” (Robert Chambers, The songs of Scotland prior to Burns, 1890)
