Apart from the fact that your comment doesn't seem to make much sense "goes from E (D-string+2) to A (E-string+5)", it is easily done on the fiddle and music transcription in general, as I have done. I wasn't playing a flute but have played with many flute players who have played the tune in Eminor. e.g John Wynne (on his recording with John McEvoy on which they're also tuned to E flat) and Dave Sheridan.. it's up to you what you want to try to do but it's obviously able to be done on flute. Practice also helps.

I know that Frankie Gavin is used to do such transpositions, but in Ador, this tune  goes from E (D-string+2) to A (E-string+5), that fits to flute/whistle/pipes range, that is nice in a session. (well, an Eb-session ...)

In Edor, it can't be played properly without changing parts of the melody ... Not flute-friendly ...

Tuned to E Flat and playing it in Em so sounds like its being played in's up to you what key you want to play a tune in. It may be composed in a certain key but who's to say you can't/you're not supposed to play it in another key?

The maid of Mout Cisco is supposed to be played in Ador ...

Fantastic clip Donal and a great strong, clear sound off the recording. Great stuff
