Tune of the Day: My Heart and Lute

by Thomas Moore, arranged for flute duet

This song/poem was written by Irish poet, singer and songwriter Thomas Moore, who is now best remembered for authoring the lyrics of “The Minstrel Boy” and “The Last Rose of Summer”. It is uncertain whether Moore also composed the music to this song.

I give thee all—I can no more
Though poor the off'ring be;
My heart and lute are all the store
That I can bring to thee.
A lute whose gentle song reveals
the soul of love full well;
And, better far, a heart that feels
Much more than lute could tell.

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