Tune of the Day: Welcome Me Home
arranged for two flutes
This romantic ballad was composed by English poet, dramatist and songwriter Thomas Haynes Bayly.
Gaily the troubadour touched his guitar,
When he was hast'ning home from the war.
Singing from Palestine hither I come;
Lady love, lady love welcome me home.
The present arrangement for two flutes appeared in Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in 1833.
