Sounds of the Recorder

On this page are mp3 files of various sizes of recorder from sopranino to bass. For those not familiar with the recorder, or have only heard the descant, they will give an idea of how they sound, particularly the larger members of the family which are my favourites.

All files are reasonably small and the size is indicated.
