Johann Sebastian Bach (1685 - 1750):  Air: Kein Arzt ist außer dir zu finden

scoring: D (Alto, Bc)

In all likelihood, this part was first conceived for a sixth flute, even if the definitive version is for transverse flute. Our edition contains both the part at real pitch and the transposed one.

source: Ricercare a quattro, a cinque e a sei. Op. 3 (Bologna 1669)
scoring: SATB

The bass line goes down once to the very low D, hence would not fit a bass recorder. The issue may be managed by transposing a few notes an octave above. If so, in the same bars it would be convenient to transpose a few notes of the tenor line as well: doing that, we could avoid playing the low C# on the tenor recorder and keep unaltered the harmonic relationship between the two low parts.

Arcangelo Corelli (1653 - 1713):  Sonata III in D major (C major) - Op. 5, No. 3
source: Premiére partie du cinquième oeuvre de Corelli ajustée à la flûte traversière avec la basse (Paris c. 1738)
scoring: A (Bc)

The original violin sonata by Corelli is in C major, while the anonymous arranger transposed it a tone above in D major to adapt it to a flute.

We publish here his arrangement as well as a transposed version a note lower (again), adapted to a treble recorder.

The «French» continuo figures differ in several points from those of the original sonata by Corelli. In our recorder adaptation we integrated the French continuo figures with some of the original ones taken from the original edition.

Jan Jaap Langereis (1962 - ):  Raindance
scoring: AATTBF

The idea for this piece first started while hearing the song The Space played live by the prog-rock band Marillion. I imagined the strings at the beginning of the song played on a recorder (probably professional deformation wink) and after a while the melody simply flew in my head. Call it luck, call it magic, but the melody was very suitable to make it into a canon.

The title came while recording it (the piece was finished already); it was raining outside – a very common thing in autumn in the Netherlands – and I heard the drops of tones falling on the floor, more and more, on which the melody starts dancing: Raindance.

The piece is written especially for my Recorder Orchestra in Castricum (Holland) of which I am the director. It is easy to play, so very suitable to do with a wide range of skills. It is written for low recorders (from alto to great bass) because of the warm and beautiful sound of greater recorders. There is an extra seventh part to be played on a bass recorder in C, especially if the great bass recorder is not able to reach the highest notes.

Please, do not play it on a sopranino and have fun!

August Heinrich von Weyrauch (1788 - 1865):  Adieu!
scoring: SATB
Very little, if anything, is known about Weyrauch apart from his authorship of this song. It was published as Adieu! in Paris, circa 1835. The title page mentioned ‘Mr. F Schubert’ as the composer with ‘paroles françaises’ by Mr. Bélanger, and there is a dedication to Mr. A Nourrit (the famous tenor who did so much to advocate Schubert’s lieder in France). The song actually dates from 1824, and it was privately published by its composer, Weyrauch, with the title «Nach Osten», and a poem by Wetzel. We do not know whether Weyrauch played any part in the original falsification, or its eventual discovery. The music was re-imported to Germany in 1843 under Schubert’s name as a solo piano piece. Even Schumann seems to have believed the song was by Schubert himself. No doubt on account of its popularity the song was reprinted in Volume 6 of Max Friedländer’s Schubert Edition for Peters (1873) together with a warning that the song had been incorrectly attributed to Schubert. As the only song in French by even a phoney ‘Schubert’, and a lyrical manner that suited the contemporary taste for the cavatina, it received many performances – and Schubert’s name was usually given, willy-nilly, as the composer. In this music one can hear a prophecy of the long-breathed melodies of Gounod (said to be influenced by Schubert); songs like Fauré’s Après un rêve were the final flowering of a particularly French genre initiated by Adieu!.

scoring: A or V (Bc)

Because of its key, this sonata, does not suit the usual transposition a minor third above very well. So, I preferred to adapt it for treble recorder leaving it in the original C major key.

Our edition contains a transposed part for the voice flute as well, which exactly follows the original flute part.

In all likelihood, this cantata has to be attributed to Hoffmann, even if it has been credited to Bach throughout the 19th century. I decided to include it in this series for completeness’ sake.

Bach's sacred music is a plentiful source of music for recorders in any kind of combinations. So, I decided to transcribe parts meant for recorders found in Bach's cantatas in a series titled Recorder Parts in Bach’s Sacred Music.

This series has a twofold aim: providing parts for professional performances and giving everyone eager to practice recorder a fundamental collection of exercises.

This is the faithful transcription of the only movement (the ninth one) conceived for recorders of the earlier version of Magnificat BWV 243. This version of Esurientes is different from the later one – which sees flutes instead of recorders – and deserves a complete new edition.

The source I used is the autograph manuscript; editorial embellishments are in smaller character.

scoring: D or S (Strings, Bc)

Our edition contains both the score in D major – for a sixth flute (descant recorder in D) – and a transposed adaptation of the same concerto in C major.

Babell conceived his composition in D major carefully, and the violins often reach the lowest note of the instrument (G2); hence, to transpose the concerto a tone lower in C major, I had to adapt some passages of the strings. The soprano part in C major can be used to play the sixth flute using fingering in C. It is worth remembering that the original recorder part was notated in F major, since the only fingering used in England in the 18th century was that for a treble recorder.

I decided to transcribe and adapt for recorder this sonata because its last movement is found – already arranged for recorder – in Sonata 3, attributed to Valentini in the manuscript CF-V-23: Sinfonie di Varij Autori. We do not know why that sonata contains the Corrente of this one, but I thought that the whole Vivaldi sonata was worth being adapted for recorder.

These parts are to be played by two treble recorders at Kammerton, which is a tone lower of the Kirchenton, and in fact the autograph score notated them in French clefs with a flat (F major) while the other instruments read their parts in Eb major with two flats.

Johann Sebastian Bach (1685 - 1750):  Air: Mein Seelenschatz ist Gottes Wort, Cantata «Gleichwie der Regen und Schnee vom Himmel fällt» - BWV 18
source: Recorder Parts in Bach’s Sacred Music
scoring: AA

We can infer from the previous movements of this cantata that this aria as well was supposed to be played by two treble recorders in F tuned at Kammerton, while all the other instruments were tuned at Kirchenton, a tone higher. And indeed the original score presents the recorder parts a tone higher in F major (without flat).

Unfortunately, the recorder line reaches the low D (E as read by the recorders) at bars 7 and 40. We do not know whether the specific recorders used for this cantata were capable to descend to that note, but we could easily transpose the four Es an octave above: this in fact happens in several recorder concerti by Vivaldi in the «tutti» sections.

These parts were to be played by two treble recorders doubling two viols (viole). Since the treble recorders were possibly tuned at Kammerton, which was a tone lower of the Kirchenton, the part must be read a tone higher, in A minor, .
