The Tenor Recorder is an awkward instrument. Generally, it is keyless, which makes the finger span the greatest of all the recorders (though some manufactures now produce models with keys for the right little finger). In recorder consorts, the largest member of the group is generally placed on the Tenor. It produces a very beautiful sound and is the exact same range as the C Flute. The Tenor is softer and less direct sound than does the Alto Recorder.
