Tune of the Day: Pensez à moi

arranged for two flutes

This song, first published around 1832, was composed by a James G. Drake (ca. 1815–1850), about whom little is known.

When sorrow clouds thy dream of mirth,
And promised joys fade too soon,
When flowers lie scentless on the earth,
Nor hope is left to gild the gloom;
Then while sad thy heart may be
Pensez à moi, ma chère amie!

The present arrangement for two flutes appeared in Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in Philadelphia in 1833. Therein, it is erroneously presented as “French”, probably because of the title, which is French for “Think of me”.
