Tune of the Day: Oh! 'Tis Love!
Traditional English country dance
This song appears in several collections of the mid-1820s and 1830s, such as G.E. Blake's Gentlemen's Amusement (1824). It appears to be an English adaptation of a French song titled “C'est l'amour”. It can be played either as a slow air or, as suggested in Harding's All-Round Collection of Jigs, Reels and Country Dances, as a country dance.
