Tune of the Day: Home! Sweet Home!
This song, composed by Englishman Sir Henry Bishop in 1823, has remained well known for almost 200 years now. Originally a favorite with troops on both sides of the American Civil War, it has recently also become famous in Japan as “Hanyū no Yado” (“My Humble Cottage”), and has been used in several movies.
The present arrangement for three flutes is taken from Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in 1833.
