Tune of the Day: A Feather in My Cap

for two flutes

This duet is taken from Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in Philadelphia in 1833. Unfortunately we were unable to track the exact origins of the melody, but the expression “a feather in one's cap” usually refers to an achievement that one takes pride in. Traditionally, Native American warriors added feathers to their headdresses as a sign of bravery in battle. Medieval knights in England also wore feathers in their helmets as a sign of their bravery.
