Tune of the Day: O'er the Water to Charlie

arranged for two flutes

Though its title clearly stems from the Jacobite era, this tune is certainly older, and has had many names. It appears to be based on a dance tune called “Pot Stick”, whose first appearance is in the 2nd volume of John Walsh's Caledonian Country Dances, published circa 1737.

The present arrangement for two flutes is taken from Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in Philadelphia in 1833.
