Tune of the Day: Go Forget Me

arranged for two flutes

This piece was originally an arrangement for voice and piano of a tune from Mozart's celebrated opera Don Giovanni, with words by Irish poet Charles Wolfe.

Go, forget me: why should sorrow
O'er that brow a darkness fling?
Go, forget me; and tomorrow
Brightly smile and sweetly sing;
Smile -though I shall not be near thee,
Sing -though I shall never hear thee.
May thy soul with pleasure shine,
Lasting as the gloom of mine.

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