THE Recorder Book
If I had to live with only one book of recorder music this would be it. It has a large collection of good music from easy to difficult. No, there aren't any duets or ensemble pieces. This book is for someone sitting around the house playing recorder. Usually easy pieces...

My fault, I guess...
I had hoped for some ensemble arrangements, and thought that is what this was. While solo recorder is nice, ensemble makes for fine music, so I was disappointed. I guess it was my own fault, however, as I thought it was arranged for multiple parts.

A classic classical repertoire
This book contains many golden oldies of the fine music repertoire. Purists would rightly note that many pieces were never intended for recorder, but the thrill of recognition makes up for it. The occasional mistake in transcription just puts the player more on their metal.
