Tune of the Day: Time Has Not Thinn'd My Flowing Hair
by William Jackson, arranged for two flutes
Today we propose a canzonet by William Jackson of Exeter, an English organist and composer of the Classical period. Jackson composed two operas and a large number of songs, but was also a painter, a writer, and an amateur astronomer. Tenor Michael Kelly remembered him as “a man of great taste and musical research, but very eccentric”.
The present arrangement for two flutes is taken from Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in Philadelphia in 1833.
