Traditional American reel
The only known appearance of this reel in print is in Harding's All-Round Collection of Jigs, Reels and Country Dances, published in New York in 1905. The book calls it a “stop reel”, presumably because the B part has several halting syncopations in it. The tune may have served as the vehicle for a novelty or stage dance from around the turn of the 20th century.
We transposed the melody from G major to B-flat major to better fit the range of the flute.

These two badines constitute the fifth movement of the first of six Concerts à deux Flutes Traversières sans Basse by the French Baroque composer Michel Pignolet de Montéclair. Here the French word concert is a synonym of “suite”, and has nothing to do with the Italian concerto. The overall structure of the piece is ABBCCBA.

from Flute Sonata No. 1 in G major
This lively giga is the closing movement of the first sonata from Sonates pour la flûte traversière avec la basse, Op. 19 by the prolific French Baroque composer Joseph Bodin de Boismortier. These sonatas were originally published in Paris in 1727.

This reel is taken from Francis O'Neill's collection Waifs and Strays of Gaelic Melody, published in Chicago in 1922. O'Neill's source for this tune was fiddler Patrick Stack, originally from North Kerry, Ireland, whom he characterized as “a fiddler whose execution was no less admirable than his modesty.”

Traditional British song, arranged for two flutes
This traditional British song dates back to at least the late 17th century. One version was published in Thomas D'Urfey's Wit and Mirth, or Pills to Purge Melancholy; a very different one appeared in George Farquhar's 1706 play The Recruiting Officer. A version also appears in John Gay's The Beggar's Opera of 1728, under the title “Were I laid on Greenland's coast”.
The present arrangement for two flutes is taken from Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in Philadelphia in 1833.
