Tune of the Day: Eton Boating Song

transcribed for Flute and Piano

Founded in 1440, Eton College is the most famous public school in Britain, and one of the most prestigious in the world. The Eton Boating Song, first performed in 1863, is sung at the school's end of year concert and other important occasions, including during the procession of boats, Eton being on the Thames, and the College having a long boating tradition. The melody was composed by an Old Etonian, Captain Algernon Drummond, whilst serving with his regiment (The Rifle Brigade) in Lahore in India.

Thanks to Mike for suggesting this piece!
