Music

The music playing is Rondeau by Henry Purcell performed with four SATB recorders.  Recorders have a long history and are frequently taught in schools because they are inexpensive and relatively easy to play. Recorders come in a range of sizes, making  it possible to form recorder ensembles.  Most common is the Soprano, but the full range goes from the small Sopranino to the large Contra-Bass.  The piece is short, but you may Click on the player if you do not wish to listen.
