Sorry, but are you asking how she does it? Pretty simple: OXX XXO. Hi D: OXX OOO. Hi E: XXO XXO.

It varies by flute. I can get a reasonably in-tune high C nat on my flute by simply:

oxo ooo

and that's good because with only one more finger down I can get the high d:

oxx ooo

I agree, most of the flutes I've tried behave this way.

Also, you can get high C-nat by half-holing. I think Orlaith is doing this at least in some places like |c'bac' bage|

Which Cnat is best is dependent on the flute. In order of pitch (flat to sharp), they common ones generally run:

OXO OOO
OXO XXX
OXO XXO

OXO OOX generally sounds, probably between the first two.

Just experiment. Which is best in tune and sounds clearest depends on the flute and also on the player.
