These English, Scottish, and Welsh melodies are especially well suited to performance on the modern flute. They also provide excellent material for developing skills in rapid tonguing, extended breath-control, and phrasing. Old favorites include "Bunessan," "Colonel Bogey," "My Eyes are Fully Open," and a few masterpiece solos by Handel and Purcell. Among the newly re-discovered gems are "Earl Grey," "I Wish You Would Marry Me Now," "Kiss Me Quick My Mother Is Coming," and "Small Birds Sweetly Singing." A separate recorder edition is available.
