Soprano Recorder

Soprano Recorder

Soprano Recorder range

This is the standard recorder given to countless elementary school children.  It is also my least favorite voice in the family.  Our disdain for the recorder comes from this instrument that is the exact same pitch as the Piccolo Flute.  Who wouldn’t be annoyed by it?  As the top voice in an SATB recorder consort its role is perfect.

One note, in the UK the Soprano is known as the Descant Recorder.
