Tune of the Day: Dear Native Home

arranged for two flutes

This flute duet is taken from Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in 1833. According to another 19th-century publication (William Ball's arrangement for harp or piano), the melody is “a favorite French romance”.

Far o'er the wave, as morn's soft beam, returning, Slowly unveiled the well-remembered shore, How swelled my heart, with eager fancies burning, Dreams of past joys, and hopes of priceless store!

Sweet home receive me
Faithful I come
Never to leave thee
Dear native home
