Twenty-five sumptuous slow descant recorder solos with piano accompaniment

I have chosen these pieces because I love every one of them. I can clearly remember the occasion when I first came across each piece and the excitement I felt.

It was during my time as a chorister at Westminster Cathedral and in my subsequent work as a church musician that I first discoevered many of the sacred pieces. The rest are my choice from years of seeking out beautiful melodies and perfect harmonies.

I hope you enjoy Just Beautiful as much as I do.
