Orpheus Music offers conductors, recorder teachers and players looking for music for a recorder school groups, recorder orchestra or large recorder ensembles that can cater for recorder societies and guild meetings.

We stock a large range of sheet music from well-known tunes, to music from the baroque, classical, romantic repertoire to contemporary music specifically composed and written for the recorder family. These arrangements cater for all recorder sizes - such as sopranino, descant/soprano, treble/alto, tenor, bass, great-bass, sub-bass and contra bass recorders. 

Modern recorder parts are notated in the key they sound in. Parts for alto, tenor and contrabass recorders are notated at pitch, while parts for sopranino, soprano, bass, and great bass are typically notated an octave below their sounding pitch. As a result, soprano and tenor recorders are notated identically; alto and sopranino are notated identically; and bass and contrabass recorders are notated identically. Octave clefs may be used to indicate the sounding pitch, however usage is inconsistent.

Rare sizes and notations include the garklein, which may be notated two octaves below its sounding pitch, and the sub-contrabass, which may be notated an octave above its sounding pitch.

Like their historical antecedents, modern recorder players frequently also play from parts written for other instruments, reading in a variety of clefs and transpositions, and must make appropriate choices of instrumentation.
