Tune of the Day: The Sailor's Tear

arranged for two flutes

This flute duet is taken from Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in 1833. The melody was composed by Sidney Waller, who also authored the tunes to “Love From the Heart” and “My Heart's True Blue”.

He leap'd into his boat, As it lay upon the strand; But oh, his heart was far away, With his friends upon the land; He thought of those he lov'd the best, A wife and infant dear, And feeling filled the sailor's breast, The sailor's eye a tear.
