Britten wrote Irish Reel in 1936 as the title music for a documentary film entitled 'Around the Village Green'. It is a bravura piece, exhibiting all the energy and strong colors typical of the composer at that time, and makes good use of a traditional reel tune with the evocative title 'The Bottom of the Punch Bowl'.
