This collection contains 28 Renaissance dances which can be played on recorder, other woodwinds, or violin. In contrast to what another reviewer said, none of the music is medieval - the composers are Susato, Obrecht, Agricola, Okeghem, Isaac, Des Pres, Brumel, and Compere, all of whom lived in the 1400s-early 1500s (the Renaissance). Each piece is in several parts, usually Soprano-Alto-Tenor-Bass or Alto-Tenor-Tenor-Bass. On about half of the songs, the top line is for soprano recorder, and about the other half it's alto. The booklet says that you can play all of the songs with any recorder, but to play alto parts on soprano you're going to have to play high into the soprano's upper register, and to play soprano parts on alto you're going to have to transpose the notes an octave up (either in your head or rewrite the part).

Amazon's description incorrectly says that the CDs contain "accompaniment only." Actually there are two CDs, one with all parts recorded, and one with the melody/top line removed. The recordings illustrate a variety of instruments playing the pieces, such as shawms and buzzy krummhorns in addition to recorder. There is mercifully no harpsichord. The performers frequently ornament the top line (play extra notes not in the printed score), which might be a bit confusing for a beginner like me, but is authentic renaissance practice and educational to hear.

The pieces can mostly be played using the lower octave of the recorder, and only a few common sharps and flats, so are accessible to someone who has finished a level one recorder method (such as Book 1 of Zeitlin). The rhythms are generally not complex, and steep intervals are rare. The tempo is quite zippy on the CD, but you can practice more slowly and gradually work up to speed.

Echoes of Time, Music Minus One

Music is well selected and beautifully played. Also, the book is well printed, though the fonts are quite small in some of the partitions.
I rate the item with three stars only because I believe that the information provided by both the publisher and by Amazon are insufficient for a relatively expensive item which is sold on the Internet.
The product is announced as Renaissance Music. Though the players are the New York Renaissance Band, and the two composers mentioned on the backcover (Susato and Sicher) lived and worked during the Renaissance, other partitions contained in this book are actually Medieval music -- often difficult to understand and, moreover, to play. Second, if you play the alto recorder, you will find that some of the partitions need to be played one octave higher (e.g.Okehem); other are logically enough quite rapid. In short, if you are an intermediary "aficionado" player (as is my case) you will not be able to play many of the partions in this book without a lot of effort and, probably, a teacher's guidance. To summarise, try to have a look at the book before purchasing it.

Information given for product was not accurate. The music is not annotated to indicate which part is the one left out, if it it is indeed left out. Not at all what I wanted.
