Tune of the Day: The Shady Greenwood Tree

from “Maid of Judah”, arranged for two flutes

This flute trio appears in Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in 1833. It is an arrangement of a piece from Maid of Judah, or Knights Templars, the 1829 English-language adaptation of Rossini's 1826 pastiche opera Ivanhoé by Irish violinist and composer Michael Rophino Lacy. The music of Ivahoé had in turn been selected from four of Rossini's former operas: Semiramide, Mosè, Tancredi, and La gazza ladra.
