“Melodies of Olde London!”

Chris Hankin Just Flutes staff member - [email protected]

These twelve melodies have been skillfully arranged from popular songs written by eigtheenth century English composers for concerts in Vauxhall Gardens. Unusual titles such as Phillis Refuses, My Love to Requite and Care Flies from the Lad that is Merry rub shoulders with the more familiar Under the Greenwood Tree and Lack-a-day, O! The result is a quirky book that is really charming. Currently, He Piped so Sweet and Old Towler are set for ABRSM grades 2 and 3 respectively.
