Tune of the Day: Come, ye Sons of Art

by Henry Purcell, arranged for two flutes

Come ye Sons of Art is one of Henry Purcell's most elaborate, most important and most magnificent works. It was written in 1694 as a birthday ode for Queen Mary II of England, using a text by Irish poet Nahum Tate.

Come, ye Sons of Art, come away,
Tune all your voices and instruments play
To celebrate this triumphant day.

Thanks to Erika for suggesting this piece!
