Amhrán na hEascainne (Song of the Eel) for Solo Flute and Optional Drone by Sarah Bassingthwaighte. Amhrán na hEascainne (Song of the Eel) is based on the old Irish song of the same name. This piece can be performed in a few ways: as a solo C-flute piece, as a solo alto flute piece, and either of those with a drone. The drone itself can be done a number of ways. If it’s a one-note drone, then any E will work (lower than the flute is optimal). If possible, a two-note drone is even better, and should be E and B, (again lower than the flute is best).
