This is a beautiful solo piece for both flute and fiddle. Written by Sarah Allen, I believe.


I’m working on learning this one and the tune that comes before it on Flatfish. Both are lovely tunes. This one in particular, though, is really highlighting my faulty breath management skills! All the notes are so lovely…can’t figure out which ones to drop!

Re: A Quiet Autumn

The key signature should be Bmin, with a C#, shouldn’t it ?

Re: A Quiet Autumn

Just been listening to Flook’s set Bruno in which this is the second tune - it’s a strongly G centred tune and I can only hear C naturals. Mandolala’s transcription is pretty accurate IMHO.

I agree, it’s G. However, the B part kind of starts off in Bm but the C is still natural. I’d still call it a G tune.
