Tune of the Day: Handel's March

from “Joshua”, arranged for two flutes

This flute duet appears in Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in 1833. The melody is from one of George Frideric Handel's most famous choruses, “See the Conq'ring Hero Comes”, which was originally penned for the 1747 oratorio Joshua. It was an immensely popular number, and Handel soon added it to Judas Maccabaeus, which had premiered the season before. The chorus is more often thought of in connection with that oratorio because of its relatively greater fame.
