Arrangements and Transcriptions Music Library

This is where you’ll find recorder arrangements and transcriptions of older music, including pieces from the Renaissance, Baroque, and Classical eras, as well as traditional pieces and more “modern” music such as Ragtime and Blues.  For more music of this type, free for download, you may want to check the International Music Score Library Project (IMSLP) and the Choral Public Domain Library (CPDL).

These pieces are available to logged-in ARS members by clicking on the provided links below. Non-members may view a preview and listen to a sound sample, if available. For information about joining ARS, click HERE. Please note that the ARS does not specifically endorse nor commission any of the works provided on this page. We hope you enjoy playing and sharing these pieces! Please observe any copyright limitations requested by the composer.

You may use the Composition Share Link, found on each piece, to share this music with your friends. Note that anyone may see the thumbnail image and listen to the sound sample, but only logged-in ARS members may download music or listen to the entire .mp3 recording.

Look for Play-along opportunities!  For some of these pieces, arrangers have provided Play-along accompaniment tracks, including keyboard accompaniment, percussion accompaniment, or one or more additional recorder parts.  Find these by selecting "Recorded Accompaniment" in the Style search field.
