Tune of the Day: Whither My Love

by Giovanni Paisiello, arranged for two flutes

This aria, with music by Italian composer Giovanni Paisiello, was originally part of Stephen Storace's popular opera The Haunted Tower, which premiered in London in 1789.

Whither my love, ah whither art thou gone?
Let not thy absence cloud this happy dawn.
Say, by thy heart, can falsehood e'er be known?
Ah no, I judge it by my own.

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