Tune of the Day: The Dashing White Sergeant

arranged for two flutes

“The Dashing White Sergeant” was originally a song written by English composer, conductor and arranger Sir Henry Rowley Bishop, and published in the mid-1820s. Perhaps because of its title, the tune was quick to enter British military repertoire as a march; the melody was soon adapted for dancing, however, becoming nearly as popular in America as it was in England.

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