Tune of the Day: How Great is the Pleasure

arranged for three flutes

This popular piece was written by Henry Harington, an 18th-century English physician, author and composer who also served as the mayor of Bath. It is a catch, meaning that all parts repeatedly play the same melody starting at different times.

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