Tune of the Day: Allen-a-Dale

arranged for two flutes

“Allen-a-Dale” was originally a song in Rokeby, a 1813 narrative poem in six cantos by Sir Walter Scott. American pianist and composer Charles Gilfert, a contemporary of Scott, set some of the poems from Rokeby to music shortly after its publication, including “Allen-a-Dale”.

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