Rounds can be a useful tool for recorder players as warm up exercises, a simple resource for technical work, learning a new instrument or as performance pieces. EachRounds for Recorders volume contains 20 rounds, ranging from short, simple pieces to more complex works. Each round is printed for soprano/tenor, alto and bass recorders. Researched to enhance player knowledge, these rounds provide musicians with plenty of fascinating material to both read and perform. Always interesting but reflecting past times, some of the rounds contained within are unsuitable for children.
Rounds have found favour with audiences and players alike. In their time, musicians of all abilities and social classes enjoyed them, describing the worlds they inhabited occasionally with a comic angle. Whether demonstrating intellectual compositional skills, scoring points at corrupt politicians, taking pot-shots at social mores, or stirring blushes during ale-soaked get togethers, the irreverent history of rounds belongs to a tradition that has flourished throughout the centuries.
