Tune of the Day: Araby's Daughter

arranged for two flutes

British violinist and composer George Kiallmark originally wrote “Araby's Daughter” in 1822 as a song for voice and piano. Its melody was later and more famously used to set lyrics from the poem “The Old Oaken Bucket” by Samuel Woodworth.

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