Tune of the Day: Look From Thy Lattice Love

traditional song, arranged for two flutes

This flute duet is taken from Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in 1833. The piece appears to be an adaptation of a Spanish song known as “La Cachucha”, which had previously appeared in the Musical Gem, published in London in 1831.

Look from thy lattice, love, look! and see,
O'er the dark waters shining,
See where my bark draws near for thee,
Hasten, for day is declining,
Softly afar, Dies the dim ray, love,
Lo! The night star, Hither away, love,
Hither away! Ev'ry vain fear Pry'thee allay, love,
Freedom is here, Hither away, love, Hither away!
