Tune of the Day: Come Where the Aspens Quiver

arranged for two flutes

This song was originally composed for voice and guitar by English musician Alexander Lee (1802–1851), and dedicated to the popular singer Harriet Waylett, who would later become his wife. It is probably the best known among the many songs that Lee composed during his lifetime.

Come where the aspens quiver
Down by the flowing river;
Bring your guitar, bring your guitar,
Sing me the songs I love.

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