Tune of the Day: I Stood Among the Glitt'ring Throng

arranged for flute duet

This song was composed by Englishman Sir Henry Bishop (1786–1855).

I stood amid the glitt'ring throng,
I heard a voice, its tones were sweet,
I turn'd to see from whence they came,
And gazed on all I long'd to meet;
She was a fair and gentle girl,
Her bright smile greeted me by chance —
I whisper'd low! I took her hand,
I led her forth to dance.

The present arrangement for two flutes is taken from Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in 1833.
