Tune of the Day: Robin Adair

arranged for three flutes

This traditional Irish song, with lyrics written by Lady Caroline Keppel, was very popular in the 18th century. It was notably mentioned by Jane Austen in her 1815 novel Emma, in which the character Jane Fairfax plays it on the piano.

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