Emile Benoit made up this reel while fiddling in an airplane. It’s got that strange (to Irish sensibilities, anyway) AAABB structure that a number of his reels have.
And here’s the cast of Emile’s Dream (Phil Churchill, Daniel Payne, and Kelly Russell) playing the tune (and a number of others, but Flying Reel is first) as they fly to Labrador: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XD5lWhBtTkM
The only way to fly
I wish all flights were like that.
