Tune of the Day: Oh Come Where the Roses
by J.A. Wade, arranged for flute duet
This ballad was written by Irish composer and conductor Joseph Augustine Wade in 1831.
Oh! come where the Roses
for ever are blowing.
Secure from the blighting
of Winters rude time.
The present arrangement for two flutes appeared in Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in 1833.
