Tune of the Day: The Little Mountaineer

arranged for two flutes

This ballad was composed by English songwriter William Ball (1784–1869), about whom very little is known.

Good morrow to the morning new!
The fields and flow'rets bright with dew!
Good morrow, shepherd lads, to you!
Good morrow, maidens dear!
Good morrow to our holiday,
And all who list my tuneful lay,
Or join upon her merry way
Your little mountaineer.

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