Tune of the Day: We Part to Meet No More

by John Davy, arranged for two flutes

This piece was originally sung as a duet in the 1803 musical drama Rob Roy. The present arrangement for two flutes appeared in Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in Philadelphia in 1833. Although the piece is marked as “Scotch” in this collection, the music was actually written by English composer John Davy (1763–1824). It is true, however, that Davy drew heavily from familiar Scottish songs, which makes sense considering that the work was about the famed Scottish folk hero Rob Roy MacGregor.

Forlorn and broken hearted,
I weep my last adieu,
And sigh o'er joys departed,
That time can ne'er renew
