These English, Scottish, and Welsh melodies are especially well suited to performance on the soprano recorder. They also provide excellent material for developing skills in rapid tonguing, extended breath-control, phrasing and the playing of high notes. Although arranged primarily for soprano recorder, most of these solos can be played on tenor or alto recorder. (On the alto, use C fingerings.) Old favorites include Bunessan, Colonel Bogey, My Eyes are Fully Open, and a few masterpiece solos by Handel and Purcell. Among the newly re-discovered gems are Earl Grey, I Wish You Would Marry Me Now, Kiss Me Quick My Mother Is Coming, and Small Birds Sweetly Singing. A separate flute edition is available.
