    W:2) Beautiful dreamer, out on the sea,
    W:Mermaids are chanting the wild lorelie;
    W:Over the streamlet vapors are borne,
    W:Waiting to fade at the bright coming morn.
    W:Beautiful dreamer, beam on my heart,
    W:E'en as the morn on the streamlet and sea;
    W:Then will all clouds of sorrow depart,
    W:Beautiful dreamer, awake unto me!
    W:Beautiful dreamer, awake unto me!

Arrangement Note: Beautiful Dreamer was adapted to fit the constraints of flutes that have a range of an octave and a minor third, such as Butch Hall concert tuned flutes. Depending on the make of your flute, the high notes may or may not be accessible. The following adaptions were made to the melody to flutes. In the 24th measure, the original melody note was raised to a D natural, which avoids half-holing. In the 31st measure, the first note was lowered to a high F sharp to fit the range of the flutes.
