This E-minor jig is taken from Francis O'Neill's collection Waifs and Strays of Gaelic Melody, published in 1922, in which it is referred to as “a superior variant of ‛The Dancing Master’”. The tune is also closely related to “The Swallowtail Jig”, but while the two “A” parts are almost identical, “Dromey's Fancy” offers what many consider a more interesting “B” part.

from “24 Caprice-Etudes for Flute”
This study in A-flat major is the ninth piece of a collection of 24 “Caprice-Études” for flute by Theobald Boehm, the German inventor who perfected the modern Western concert flute. These studies originally served as a proof of the playability of Boehm's improved instrument in all 24 keys, but they are also very useful technical exercises.

by Marin Marais, transcribed for flute and bass intrument
This broodingly contemplative piece, whose title means “the human voices”, appears in French composer Marin Marais's Deuxième livre de pièces de viole, published in 1701. It is the penultimate movement of Suite No. 3 in D major for bass viol and continuo. The viol, or viola da gamba, is a bowed instrument somewhat similar to a cello, but fretted like a guitar. It was very popular during the Baroque period.
Thanks to Leonardo and Caroline for suggesting this piece!
