Samuel Brenton Whitney
(1842–1914) was the organist for the Church of the Advent in Boston, Massachusetts, taught at
New England Conservatory, and was a founder of the American Guild of Organists
Mendelssohn’s Song Number 6 in Opus 38, listed as “Andante con moto in A-flat major,” was given the title
“Duetto” by the composer since two melodies were written to represent two singers. It was written in Frankfurt in June 1836.
Whitney’s arrangement keeps the spirit of the original piano piece. Moderately easy.
