From the Publisher“...this work is likely to become a standart work very quickly and is to be recommended to all schools where recorder studies are undertaken“ (Oliver James, Contact Magazine) A novel and comprehensive approach to transferring from the C to F instrument. 430 music examples include folk and national songs (some in two parts), country dance tunes and excerpts from the standart treble repertoire - Bach, Barsanti, Corelli, Händel, Telemann, etc. An outstanding feature of the book has proved to be Brian Bonsor's brilliantly simple but highly effective practice circles and recognition squares designed to give, in only a few minutes, concentrated practice on the more usual leaps to and from each new note and instant recognition of random notes. Quickly emulating the outstanding success of the descant tutors, these books are very popular even with those who normally use tutors other than the "Enjoy the Recorder" series.
Contentstaken from the foreword:
'Part 2 of From Descant to Treble teaches the remaining noted of the treble's 'normal' (two octaves and one) compass. It gives considerable, and much needed, practice on the high notes and the more awkward chromatic notes which, because they are met comparatively rarely cannot be assimilated by constant repetition as most other notes are.'
