Tune of the Day: The Pilgrim of Love

arranged for two flutes

This was originally a song by English composer, conductor and arranger Sir Henry Bishop.

A hermit who dwells in these solitudes cross'd me,
As wayworn and faint up the mountain I press'd;
The aged man paus'd on his staff to accost me,
And proffer'd his cell as the mansion of rest.
Ah! nay, courteous father, right onward I rove,
No rest but the grave, for the Pilgrim of Love!

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