Here are 4 lovely pieces that really will give great pleasure to many flute players. The Cuckoo is marked 'joyously' and that is exactly how it sounds, with paired quavers contrasting with running semiquavers. Woodlark has a laid-back jazz feel and the 6/8 of the Blackbird and Songthrush meanders chromatically around E minor. The 'slow and soulful' nature of the Willow Warbler and Chiffchaff sees a melifluous melody interrupted by staccato 'pecking'. Each piece stands individually or in any combination so they will be even more useful. This is a very good value purchase so you might as well buy it now!
