Tune of the Day: Green Hills of Tyrol

arranged for two flutes

This popular melody, believed to be based on an alpine folk tune, was featured in two of Gioachino Rossini's most famous operas: Cinderella (1817) and William Tell (1829). It is known to many as “A Scottish Soldier”, because of the lyrics added to the tune in 1961 by Scottish singer Andy Stewart.

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