Tune of the Day: Go Where Glory Waits Thee

Traditional Irish air

“Go Where Glory Waits Thee” was written by the famous Irish poet and songwriter Thomas Moore (1779–1852). Moore's poem was later set to a traditional Irish melody, known as “The Maid of the Valley”.

Go where glory waits thee,
But while fame elates thee,
Oh! still remember me.
When the praise thou meetest
To thine ear is sweetest,
Oh! then remember me.

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