Yes, this book does focus more on the baroque than the folk, but I find the tunes delightful to play and offering a range of challenge. I play them on my descant, treble(alto) and tenor recorders and get a lot of enjoyment from them. It is tricky finding popular music for the recorder, but I think that this book offers a great contribution, spanning the gap between the beginners/tutorial books before the concertos and more complex pieces of the baroque period. I enjoy playing the folk tunes on it as well - though I often find that vocal scores offer very playable folk music for the recorder and can be easily adapted/ornamented.

We have worn out our old copy of this terrific collection. If you are an intermediate recorder player, and/or moderately good finger playing guitarist, this book is for you. It is the only collection I have found that has beautiful baroque melodies with fairly simple guitar chord symbols. Most recorder collections seem to come with fully scored guitar, - too much for most average players, or with piano,- ditto. Some of the books in this series are over simple. This one is perfect. I wish there could be more in this vein. We have used this book playing at numerous weddings.

Fine tunes, but the booklet physically falls apart after a couple of weeks.

There are few folk tunes in this, a polka o two, and the rest if Baroque. And most of that written in some very bizarre keys. Waste of time.
