SP2393 Folk Songs From a World Apart Arrange by Marilyn Copeland Davidson.
A collection of 8 beautiful folk melodies arranged for beginning and intermediate soprano recorders. Most arrangements include a very easy Soprano Recorder 2 part that can be played by beginners as descants as others sing the song. The optional accompaniments are purposely minimal. They include Orff instruments and, for each orchestration, one unpitched percussion instrument. The recorder parts are also printed separately on pages following each Orff instrument score. Simple, varied suggestions for improvisation accompany each orchestration.
