Tune of the Day: Yes I Will Leave My Father's Halls
arranged for two flutes
This flute duet is taken from Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in 1833. The melody was composed by Sidney Waller, who also authored the tunes to “The Sailor's Tear” and “My Heart's True Blue”.
Yes I will leave my father's halls,
To roam along with thee;
Adieu, adieu my native walls!
To other scenes I flee.
