That sounds okay then! Though I would probably have to find some descant/tenor only music - I think I'm the only treble player in the school (This of about 1800 kids? )
We only had one other treble player apart from me and she couldn't read the bass clef. The reason I said we didn't use all the recorders all the time was because I got bored playing bass all the time. (Although the school did have a lovely wooden bass recorder lying unused at the back of the music store cupboard, which I had on permanent loan).
Going back to your own problem, you can get music for three recorders where the first line is for descant, the third line for tenor and the second line is written out twice, once for a treble and once for either a descant or a tenor.
I didn't know that - thanks! Our school does have a fair few recorders lying about - at least one is a tenor, though I'm not sure about the others! They're all plastic though
There seams to be lots of types of wood recorders can be made of I have heard mention of Cherry, Rose Box, Pear etc, what are the differences, warmer sounds? Cost? quality?
Cost and sound quality. Moeck have a neat little summery with pictures on their website: http://www.moeck.com/
Go to "recorders" and then "worth knowing and faq"
I have an aulos sopranino, descant and treble and a wodden tenor (no idea what the make is).
The moeck rosewood recorders look lovely though
Is it me, or is there no English translation for the FAQ ?
