The Collier’s Reel

Here's a tune which as was correctly pointed out to me, I had forgotten to post up to now. I've played it on a poor, old and sick Rudall flute. I had even taken a picture of the flute but it's been so long since I've posted a tune here that I've forgotten how to include a photo (or else this site has forgotten how to have photos posted on it). The flute can't remember how to play bottom Ds yet. I'll be leaving it into a flute hospital in Galway shortly - maybe a bit of hypnosis from beyond the Pale will remind it of this particular alphabetic bark.

    Your flute site, and particularly your observations , comments, reflections are a grand contribution to my world.I am in debt. Now, shouldn’t that make you smile?

    Thanks Jean. A smile has developed accordingly - the first one ever on a Tuesday as far as I can recall.
