This is a lavish large format publication* with many colour and monochrome photographs and technical drawings. The text, much by Fred Morgan himself, gives the reader insight to the process of copying and recreating recorders from the times when they were at their peak. Contributions from the players of his instruments balance the technicalities and fill in the details of a fine craftsman with a deep understanding of artists and musicians.
Nowhere else have I seen so many historic recorders illustrated so well, and in glorious colour. I commend this book to anyone who has an interest and love of the recorder as a solo instrument.
My last sterling price for the book was £40.00 (2013) but I can no longer supply it. It was originally available from Mollenhauer. If you want one now please contact Fred Morgan's widow, details below.
