In response to many surfer requests, especially from USA, this webpage has been set up to provide direct access to over a total of 9816 items of sheet music which can be obtained at SheetMusicPlus.com , 2511 pieces at the Amazons as well as 1246 pieces at our own Ditty Box Enterprises as of 08.05.13.
In January 2012, these webpages were extended to include brass and bagpipe sheet music of which there are 50 and 50 respectively.
The immodest intention of this webpage is, in the course of time, to cover all recorder sheet music commercially available by e-commerce on the Internet. Such pages come with a serious health warning :-).
The data, amounting to some 18.000 items, was obtained by searching SheetMusicPlus.com and the Amazons for recorder music and was then cross-checked against the various publishers' catalogues in my possession. Obvious mistakes were corrected and many German titles restored where the given English title was misleading. The spelling of composers' names is, where applicable, in accordance with The New Penguin Dictionary of Music. Only those items providing complete information (i.e. Order No., Title, Publisher, Publisher Code, Composer and Instruments) have been included. I regularly research and trawl for new data which is released in batches of between 200-500 items at a time. Check out
Notes & Hints which provides background information, abbreviations and more on collected data
Whilst taking every care possible is taken in the compilation of this data, the user should always be aware that the source information at SheetMusicPlus.com and the Amazons is often erroneous and misleading. On-line purchasers are strongly advised to carefully check that goods received match the product description. I can only vouch for items which I possess in my own library. No guarantees of any kind whatsoever are made. Cave caveat!
A final word. This huge collection of items can be made more interesting, informative and helpful if surfers' comments or anecdotes on the various pieces are available. Please send
comments/review, they will be very welcome.
