from Chamber Concerto in D minor, transcribed for flute and piano
This is the final movement of a Concerto in D minor for Flute, Violin, Bassoon and Continuo, which Vivaldi probably composed in the 1720s. It can also be played as a flute duet, with the second flute playing the violin part (right hand of the piano arrangement).
Thanks to Pavlína for suggesting this piece!

Traditional English country dance
This old Northern England country dance tune first appeared in print in John Playford's Apollo's Banquet, published in London in 1669. It subsequently appears in several ballad operas, although in altered form, usually with the title “Lord Frog”, from a song written to it by Thomas D'Urfey which begins “Great Lord Frog to Lady Mouse”.
Thanks to Phil for suggesting this tune!

Traditional Italian Christmas carol, arranged for flute quartet
This arrangement for three concert flutes and one alto flute of “O felice, o chiara notte” (“O happy, o clear night”) was kindly contributed to our collection by Francesco Spiga. The carol comes from Trentino, a mountainous region in Northern Italy.
O happy, o clear night,
Of that light you are fruitful,
But the dawn is more joyous,
More charming than morning.
Come now, o you shepherds, do not sleep,
For it is time to watch!
But those voices are gone,
They quickly come back.
Come now, o you shepherds, to the hut,
Come on and do not delay!
Forget your lambs:
God will watch from above.
