Composed by Jonathan Merrett and written in an approachable modern idiom Three Descant Recorder Pieces is fun to play and easy to listen to. The first movement, Promenade, is a gentle walk in the countryside. The second piece, Song, is a lyrical melody that challenges the player to sustain the long lines of the tune. The finale, Swinging Along, is joyful and jazzy and is a lively counterpart to the other two movements. The piano accompaniment supports the soloist well, and is written in an accessible style for the teacher to accompany their pupil. Ideal for teaching studios, middle and secondary schools.

Review: "These three pieces offer the opportunity for the player of about grade 3 standard to learn much longer works than the standard fare at this level, the length ranging from 73 to 114 bars long. They all contain very playable and enjoyable melodies with lovely piano parts that really add to the music. The first piece, Promenade is somewhat reminiscent of Borodin's Polovtsian Dances. The second, Song, has a legato melody where the player could really work at developing a beautiful singing tone. The third piece, Swinging Along' does exactly what the title suggests. The music is well presented and very easy to read. Great enjoyment could be had by spending some time working them up to performance standard. They would make great concert items." – Debbie Porro in the The Recorder Magazine, Autumn 2012
