The goal of this book is to expand the solo repertoire for the tenor recorder, which is all too often undeservedly moved to background. Having the range close to both shakuhachi and female voice, the tenor sounds really good for traditional songs. The book has both adapted vocal pieces, heavily ornamented flute pieces, a piece to be played shakuhachi-style (with the mouth not covering the beak) and van Eyck-style divisions.
I find the pieces to be very heavy on notation, and wish there were more annotations and a somewhat longer description. There is lots of staccato, slightly unusual to western ear ornaments, and a lot of dynamic variety which may be very hard to play on the recorder. But the main difficulty lies in the difference of these songs from the usual repertoire.
