Tune of the Day: Gallant Troubadour
arranged for two flutes
Today's piece is taken from Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in Philadelphia in 1833. It is a duet based on a traditional song set to words by Walter Scott. The origins of the melody are unclear; it is probably an old English tune, but at least one edition calls it “a celebrated French romance”.
