From Al Goldstein's contribution page on Pandora Records. Ogg Vorbis files can be found here.

Instruments and tuning:
The flute used is a Murray system flute Al Goldstein had ordered from Tom Green. It was Tom's opus #002.

Recording notes by Al Goldstein:
Several people have asked me if there were any recordings of my flute playing. At one time I had many reels of that. However they were all cannibalized for other recording projects. However, I found a cassette. It was a partial copy of a test tape I made, which contained the Handel Fitzwilliam sonatas and the E minor sonatas of Handel and Bach.

Uploader's note:
The recording can probably be filtered manually to remove the higher frequency noise. If you would like me to do that, please send me a message on my talk page.
