Tune of the Day: Twilight Dews

arranged for two flutes

Based on a poem by the Irish Thomas Moore, the melody to this song was probably composed by Sir John Andrew Stevenson.

When twilight dews are falling soft Upon the rosy sea, love,
I watch the star, whose beam so oft Has lighted me to thee, love.
And thou too, on that orb so dear, Dost often gaze at even,
And think, though lost for ever here, Thou'lt yet be mine in heaven.

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