Tune of the Day: Guardian Angels

Traditional English tune

This tune appeared with a song in Vocal Music or The Songster's Companion, printed in London in 1775, and with a country dance in Charles and Samuel Thompson's Twenty Four Country Dances, also printed in London the next year. Later it appeared in the Entire New and Compleat Instructions for the Fife, and in numerous instrumental tutors. “Guardian Angels (Watch Over Me)” was a popular song in the post-Revolutionary period in both Britain and America, and was published in numerous instrumental collections and song sheets.
