Tune of the Day: When Arthur first in Court began

arranged for three flutes

This piece was originally written by the eminent English composer John Wall Wallcott (1766–1821) as a three-part glee. The lyrics were a 17th-century parody of a 16th-century ballad by Thomas Deloney, which used to be sung to a tune known as “Flying Fame”.

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