Traditional American tune
This melody appears in the 3rd volume of George P. Knauff's Virginia Reels, published in Baltimore in 1839. The title refers to Colonel David “Davy” Crockett, the famous frontiersman and statesman, who perished at the Battle of the Alamo in 1836. Three years after his death, when the tune appeared in print, he was already a legend!

from Sonata for two flutes in E minor
This Larghetto is the opening movement of a Sonata in E minor for two flutes or recorders by a German composer named Johann Christoph Schultze. This is not to be confused with the apparently unrelated composer of the same name who was born in 1733, as this sonata was first published in Hamburg in 1729.
Thanks to Anna for suggesting this piece!

Theme from Clementi's Rondo, transcribed for solo flute
Few people know that the 1965 pop song “A Groovy Kind of Love”, which was notably recorded by Phil Collins in 1988, is heavily based on a honest-to-goodness Classical piece. This piece is the Rondo from Sonatina No. 5 in G major, Op. 36, written by Italian pianist and composer Muzio Clementi at the end of the 18th century. Unlike Clementi's Rondo, which is quick and upbeat, Collins's version is a slow, soft ballad; the theme, however, is virtually identical!
