Tune of the Day: When Thy Bosom Heaves the Sigh

by John Braham, arranged for two flutes

This duet was composed by English tenor opera singer John Braham as part of his opera Narensky, or, The road to Yaroslaf, which premiered in London in 1814, and in which Braham played the chief part.

When thy bosom heaves the sigh,
When the tear o'erflows thine eye;
May sweet hope afford relief,
Cheer thy heart and calm thy grief.

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