Today's piece is the third and final movement from the three-part “Sonata per flauto e pianoforte” by our guest composer Paul Merkus from the Netherlands.
The playful flute melody with many staccato notes is mostly accompanied rhythmically by the piano, whose part contains, towards the end, more and more answers to the flute's motifs. This way, both instruments proceed towards a festive high point, that is closed by a remarkable cadence referring to the one that concluded the first movement of the sonata.

This popular session tune is at least as old as the mid-19th century, for it was entered into the large music manuscript collection of County Cork uilleann piper Canon James Goodman.
In Waifs and Strays of Gaelic Melody (1922), Francis O'Neill remarks: “Altho' this splendid reel does not appear in the Bunting, Petrie or Joyce Collections, it was pretty generally known to the pipers and fiddlers of Chicago, hailing from the west, and south of Ireland and always by the same name.”

One of the earliest appearances of this reel is in the music manuscript collection of County Cork cleric and uilleann piper James Goodman, who obtained the tune from the music manuscripts of 19th-century bookseller John O'Daly. The same melody also appeared, with minor differences, in the Rice-Walsh manuscript.
