Beautiful early modern melodies

I bought this to go with my Thomann tenor recorder. I'm a beginning recorder player and basically wanted the instrument as a cheap oboe to play the theme tune from the Mission. The tenor recorder doesn't exactly map onto an oboe and neither does the music for this book exactly suit a tenor recorder! Nevertheless I am glad I bought this book.

I've only dipped into the book but have found it to be full of surprises, with new twists on old melodies, none of which I knew. My knowledge of early modern music is not great and doesn't stretch much beyond Palestrina. But these arrangements are suitable for an ambitious beginner, even on the wrong kind of recorder.
