The earliest known appearance of this melody in print is in Rutherford's Choice Collection of Sixty of the Most Celebrated Country Dances, which was published in London in 1750. However, the tune is probably much older; some sources even trace it back to 14th-century plain chant. Other sources think that “Merrily Danced” was either derived from “The Mill Oh”, or that both tunes share a common origin.
The melody was well-known in America at the time of the War for Independence, where it was employed as both a quick march and dance tune.

from Trio Sonata in B-flat major, transcribed for two flutes
This is the third movement of Italian Baroque composer Arcangelo Corelli's Trio Sonata No. 5 in B-flat major, published in 1685. Like the other Op. 2 sonatas, this is a sonata da camera (“chamber sonata”) for two melodic instruments (e.g. two violins, or two flutes) and basso continuo. It was intended not only for professional musicians, but also for the private enjoyment of refined amateurs.
Thanks to Mario for contributing this piece!

by Peter Pope, for flute and guitar
This delightful short piece for flute and guitar was kindly contributed to our collection by its composer, guitarist Peter Pope.
“Alpiglen” is a short evocation of those moments walking in the Jungfrau Region (Switzerland), when after an arduous (but rewarding) uphill trek, a spectacular view of the Alps opens up at the top of a ridge or around a bend.
Many thanks for sharing your music with us, Peter!
