Tune of the Day: Readings Ground

from “The Division Flute”

This piece is taken from the first volume of The Division Flute, published in London in 1706 and originally conceived for recorder and continuo. It is generally attributed to John Reading (pronounced “Redding”), an English organist and composer of the 17th century, not to be confused with his son, who was also named John and is now chiefly remembered as an important music copyist.
