Tune of the Day: There's Whiskey in the Jar

 Traditional Irish reel

This reel is taken from Harding's All Round Collection, published in 1905. The second part is oddly composed of just six measures, and was probably based on the chorus of the famous song strain “Whiskey in the Jar”.

Tune of the Day: Diavolo by Auber

 Tune from the opera “Fra Diavolo”, arranged for two flutes

This flute duet is taken from Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in 1833. The tune is that of Zerline's celebrated aria from Act I of Daniel Auber's 1830 opera Fra Diavolo, ou L'hôtellerie de Terracine. The original French lyrics start with “Voyez sur cette roche”, but the Italian (“Quell'uom dal fiero aspetto”) and English (“On yonder rock reclining”) translations are also well known.

The aria makes a notable appearance in the 1933 Laurel and Hardy film The Devil's Brothers (a.k.a. Bogus Bandits), based on Auber's opera.

Tune of the Day: Menuets by Naudot

 from Babiole No. 3 for two flutes

This pair of minuets constitutes the closing movement of the third of Jacques-Christophe Naudot's 6 Babioles pour 2 Vieles, Musettes, Flutes-a-bec, Flutes traversieres, Haubois, ou Violons, sans Basse. The French term babiole humbly indicates something of little value or importance, a trifle.
