Tune of the Day: The Flowers that Bloom in the Spring

from “The Mikado”, arranged for flute and piano

In its original form, this duet is sung by Nanki-Poo and Ko-Ko in Gilbert and Sullivan's 1885 comic opera The Mikado.

The flowers that bloom in the spring,
Breathe promise of merry sunshine.
As we merrily dance and we sing,
We welcome the hope that they bring
Of a summer of roses and wine.
And that's what we mean when we say that a thing
Is welcome as flowers that bloom in the spring.

Thanks to Ronald for suggesting this piece!
