Tune of the Day: The Bonnets of Blue

arranged for two flutes

Today we propose a nice arrangement for two flutes of “Hurrah for the Bonnets of Blue”, taken from Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine (Philadelphia, 1833). Therein, the piece is attributed to English musician Alexander Lee, but it is uncertain whether the melody was Lee's original invention or he borrowed it from English tradition.
