Recorders have been traced back to 14th
century Europe and are popular worldwide today.
They�ve been crafted out of glass, plastic, silver and various
woods including boxwood, rosewood, maple, and ebony. Also known as
a �flauto dolce�, which literally translates to sweet flute,
the recorder�s beautiful tone hypnotizes even the most weary of
travelers. First used as a gentle instrument to softly blend with
an ensemble of various acoustical textures including the lute, it
now holds its own as a well-respected solo instrument.
