Tune of the Day: Fly Not Yet
by Thomas Moore, arranged for two flutes
This song was composed by the famous Irish poet, singer and songwriter Thomas Moore. It is an adaptation of harper Turlough O'Carolan's tune “Planxty O'Kelly”, as indicated by Moore in the first volume of his collection Irish Melodies (1808).
The present arrangement for two flutes appeared in Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in 1833.
