Tune of the Day: Pauvre dame Marguerite

from “La dame blanche”, arranged for two fllutes

This air is sung by Marguerite, the elderly housekeeper of the Counts of Avenel, in Act II of François-Adrien Boieldieu's 1825 opera La dame blanche (The White Lady). In the lyrics, the pauvre (‛poor’) Marguerite laments getting old.

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