The Tenor
Unlike the treble, very little music has been written for the tenor as a solo instrument. A number of pieces are available for descant recorder with a keyboard instrument and these are, in some cases, suitable for playing on the tenor. Example 32 is
a lovely old tune which sounds delightful on the tenor recorder if played smoothly.
The main use of the tenor will be in ensemble playing, for it will be found that the instrument is used in most trios, quartets and quintets. It is, in fact, the backbone of ensemble playing and when mastered will give endless pleasure.
