Tune of the Day: The Soldier's Glory

arranged for two flutes

This old ballroom dance tune appears in the manuscripts of several 19th-century English fiddlers, and also had currency as a march. It was known under a few different titles, including “Nine-pins” and “Voulez vous danser”.

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