Tune of the Day: It is the Last Meeting

arranged for two flutes

This melody was written by London-born composer and singer Charles Edward Horn (1786–1849). It was originally part of a song with lyrics by English poet Thomas Haynes Bayly.

It is the last meeting, I know it too well;
And near you tomorrow, no more I shall dwell,
Those sweet days are gone! 'Twas folly, I know,
I once would not let myself think they could go.
At night, when one day of enjoyment was passed,
I could look to another as bright as the last,
My fate is decided, alone I shall dwell,
It is the last meeting, receive my farewell.

The present arrangement for two flutes is taken from Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in 1833.
