This tune comes from John Whelan & Eileen Ivers’ album "Fresh Takes".
My setting is supposed to be as closed to the music as possible except that, as a fluter, I have been obliged to transpose one octave higher some notes (bars 5 to 8 of the B part and some more octaviations on the last 4 bars of that same B part).
If I can risk some advices to the flute players, and to have a better continuity of the melodic line, it seems preferable to play the 4 first bars of the B part one octave higher, and as well with bars 9 to 13 (except the last C).
I will add this tune to vary my "festoù-noz" repertoire of "valse écossaise" !
