This is the first book to offer a complete introduction to the recorder. Seven contributors from four different countries write on topics such as the recorder and its music through the centuries, the recorder as orchestral instrument, the professional recorder player through history and today, and the phenomenon of the recorder revival. The Companion also contains basic reference material previously unavailable in one volume. A special feature is found in the rich collection of illustrations which in themselves provide a history of the instrument.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'... an enjoyable and worthy addition (or beginning) to your music library.' American Recorder
'... will undoubtedly become the standard text for recorder players for years to come ... I would guess that even professional players will find things here that are new to them.' Early Music Today
'... an excellent starting point for those new to the instrument or amateurs with playing experience who wish to broaden their knowledge. Such readers will come away with a better understanding of the recorder's very rich life through the centuries as well as a good idea of the astonishing amount of writing and research of the last four or five decades.' Notes
'The multiplicity of its authorship, with contributions from seven different personalities, encourages the serious reader to take a far more subjective and thoughtful approach to the recorder and its repertoire than has been past practice.' The Recorder Magazine
'The Cambridge Companion to the Recorder is one of those marvellous books that you do not have to read at one sitting ... if you do not yet own a copy - it is about time you did!'. Early Music and Recorders Journal
"It is probably the best, and certainly the most current, book-length, general survey of the instrument....The chapters make for excellent reading....I highly recommend The Cambridge Companion to the Recorder....The writing is concise and scholarly, providing thoughtful summaries by seven contributors who have spent much of their lives working in recorder research. This, combined with many wonderful illustrations, makes The Cambridge Companion to the Recorder an enjoyable and worthy addition (or beginning) to your music library." Mark Davenport, American Recorder
