Arrangement Note: To keep the melody mostly in the lower octave, the melody begins with a lower fingering. Later in the melody, this results in a few half-holed notes. This avoids the higher and shriller fingerings of many flutes. On a flute that half-holes well, this may lead to a more mellow rendition.
