Tune of the Day: Fly Away Lady Bird
Cavatina by Alexander D. Roche, arranged for two flutes
This flute duet is taken from Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in 1833. It is an arrangement of a cavatina (a short song of simple character) by Alexander D. Roche.
Fly away, lady bird! fly away —
Away, away, away!
Fly from the wind of a wintry day:
Why do you linger? away, away.
