Orpheus Music has solo recorder repertoire ideal for musical recorder solos on the soprano/descant, treble/alto, tenor and bass recorders.

Explore the recorder repertoire ranging from Medieval dances, Renaissance dances and Baroque solos, to Contemporary music including extended techniques for the recorder.

Technical recorder exercises, recorder studies and recorder teaching manuals are available for all C recorders (descant/soprano and tenor) and F recorders (Sopranino, treble/alto and bass) - perfect to hone one's technical recorder abilities.

Studies and technical sheet music for recorder (such as finger exercises, breathing and articulation techniques) start from beginner, intermediate and extend to advanced and tertiary levels.

There has now been more recorder music written in the last 100 years than in any other period. The recorder is an old instrument that has taken the new world by storm. Some modern music calls for the recorder to produce unusual noises, rhythms and effects, by such techniques as flutter-tonguing and overblowing to produce multiphonics. David Murphy's 2002 composition Bavardage is an example, as is Hans-Martin Linde's Music for a Bird.

The recorder is often used in popular music, including that of groups such as The Beatles; the Rolling Stones (see, for example, "Ruby Tuesday"); Yes, for example, in the song "I've Seen All Good People"; Jefferson Airplane (see Personnel as well as Grace Slick); Led Zeppelin (Stairway to Heaven); Jimi Hendrix;[100] Siouxsie and the Banshees;[101] Judy Dyble of Fairport ConventionDido (e.g. "Grafton Street"); and Mannheim Steamroller.

In the 2012 Charlotte Barbour-Condini became the first recorder player to reach the final of the biennial BBC Young Musician of the Year competition. Recorder player Sophie Westbrooke was a finalist in the 2014 competition.
