Tune of the Day: Alice Gray

arranged for two flutes

This popular ballad was likely composed around 1830 by Virtue Millard, about whom very little is known aside from the fact that she was the wife of a Mr. Philip Millard.

She's all my fancy painted her,
She's lovely, she's divine,
But her heart it is another's,
She never can be mine;
Yet lov'd I as man never lov'd,
A love without decay,
Oh! my heart, my heart is breaking
For the love of Alice Gray!

The present arrangement for two flutes appeared in Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in 1833.
