Tune of the Day: Beneath the Wave thy Lover Sleeps
arranged for two flutes
This duet is taken from Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in Philadelphia in 1833. It is an arrangement of a popular song that Blake attributes to “Sinclair”, probably Scottish singer John Sinclair (1791–1857). It seems unlikely that Sinclair composed the song, but his name was probably associated with it because he brought it to popularity.
