Tune of the Day: Glorious Apollo

arranged for three flutes

“Glorious Apollo” was written by organist and composer Samuel Webbe, Sr. in 1787 as a theme song for the newly founded London Glee Club. It is one of the most notable examples of glee, an English type of part song usually scored for at least three voices, and generally intended to be sung unaccompanied.

The present arrangement for three flutes is taken from Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in 1833.
