Tune of the Day: The Sea
by Sigismond Neukomm, arranged for two flutes
This song, originally for voice and piano, was written by Austrian composer and pianist Sigismund von Neukomm (1778–1858).
The sea! the sea! the open sea!
The blue, the fresh, the ever free!
Without a mark, without a bound,
It runneth the earth's wide regions round.
The present arrangement for two flutes appeared in Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in 1833.
