Recorder Music

I have played in recorder duos, chamber and orchestra groups on a very amateur basis using recorders ranging from sopranino down to bass. All the listed recorder music, some 1425 items, are in my personal library and are summarised in two indices: an index sorted by composer and an index sorted by settings.
By Composer A-B   B-C   C-F   F-H   H-J   J-K   K-M   M-P   P-S   S-T   T-Y  
By Setting Solos | Duets | Trios | Quartets | Quintets | Sextets | Septets | Octets + |
The transcription of Scott Joplin's works for the recorder has been of special interest. This task which I set myself in 1998 was more or less completed by 2003, the results of which can be seen in my Scott Joplin catalogue. I then went on to transcribe piano works of other ragtime era composers shown on the Ragtime Recorder Music webpage.

These recorder pages contain a great deal of detailed basic information including instruments required, composer, publisher etc. Work on the anecdotes, as in the same style as on my folk-music pages, is well in progress providing a bit more flesh and blood and hopefully will make the whole thing a lot more interesting. Should any recorder enthusiast out there in cyberworld like to add to anecdotes or provide further information on any piece at all listed, then please don't hesitate to e-mail me.

In response to many surfer requests, especially from USA, a special Recorder Sheet Music webpage was provide giving direct access to over 4359 and 1247 items of sheet music (as of 09.08.18) which can be obtained at and my very own Ditty Box Enterprises respectively.

Recorder Links

The following links also give a lot of interesting information.

Recorder Groups

I have been a member of the following recorder groups:

I have also had the privilege of playing the second voice in Recorder Duos and partnering:

  • Frau Koperski (1984)
  • Jutta Meyer (1992-1996)
  • Bettina Kiefner(1996)
  • Nannette Wiethölter (1997)
  • Jutta Köster (née Meyer) (1999-2003)
I initiated this Recorder Music Webring in the early, heady days when cyberspace was relatively young having not found a suitable webring to join. Therefore became webmaster on 11th April 1999 and with excitement started recruiting like-minded recorder netizens. On my retirement as ringmaster on 22.10.12, the ring had had a total of 109 members. Interest in Webrings has steadily declined but Webrings itself now manages and deems the ring to be viable with still (February 2017) some 15 members.
I remain a member for sentimental reasons and out of loyalty to those stalwart foundation members still remaining. Here I would especially like to name Jill Kemp and Dr Fred Kerstin.
