It is not always easy for an author to assess the value of what he himself writes, but what can be said about this book is that it is more accurate than it otherwise would have been had not kind friends so readily answered the questions put to them. Let me then thank Edgar Hunt, Carl Dolmetsch and Walter Bergmann for replying so patiently to the many letters I have sent to them and for answering the questions I have posed on the numerous occasions when I have sat at the feet of these masters. I am grateful too to Joyce Wardle for her helpful comments on the script and also to her and Kathleen Higson for reading the proofs. My gratitude to my son, whose musical knowledge and ability have always been at my disposal, is unbounded for the patience and skill he has shown in drawing the illustrations. My acknowledgements are due to Messrs Novello and Co Ltd. for their kindness in allowing me to use the copyright tune 'Go and tell Aunt Nancy* and I thank them and the other music publishing houses, whose addresses I have given in the book, for passing on to me so much useful information about their published music; I hope this book will be one means of making their music for recorders more widely known.
