Tune of the Day: Cynthia's Cottage

arranged for flute duet

This duet is taken from Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in Philadelphia in 1833. The melody, which appears to be traditional, had been published along with words by Philip Derrick in 1795.

When at night the village swains
Yield to sleep's bland dotage,
I will trip across the plains
To my Cynthia’s cottage;
Wish her, at the noon of night,
A refreshing sweet good night.
