Tune of the Day: Evening Song of the Tyrolese Peasants
arranged for two flutes
This song was originally a poem, authored in 1827 by English poet Felicia Hemans; shortly thereafter, it was set to music by her sister, Harriet Browne.
Come to the sunset tree!
The day is past and gone;
The woodman’s axe lies free, And the reaper’s work is done.
The present arrangement for two flutes appeared in Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in 1833.
