Whole Group Pieces (4 or 5 parts):
Introduction to the Recorder: Rik has an adapted piece of around 2 minutes, which introduces each instrument in turn, so listeners can distinguish descant / treble / tenor / bass+counterbass, finishing with all 4 in harmony: Easy end of intermediate difficulty.
Pachelbel's Canon: Jonathan has a shortened version for Descant / Treble / Tenor / Bass. Harder end of intermediate difficulty
Duets: Rik has Pitt's duet books for C instruments (Descant and/or Tenor), willing to share and play with a 2nd person - a wide range of pieces including:
Book 3: "American Patrol", "Habenera" from Bizet's Carmen, Purcell's "Fear no danger", Borodin's "Polovtsian Dances", Gershwin "Summertime" and MacDowell's "To a Wild Rose". These range from easier intermediate to harder intermediate.
Rik also has Pitt's duets for Descant and Tenor, mainly beginner to early intermediate
Looking further ahead, we have loads more familiar and possible new music to choose from once we are back playing together - some for the whole group, some for smaller ensembles, some accessible to all of us, and some that will challenge our more advanced players.
