Just in time for St. Patrick's day, short arrangements for SATB recorders of traditional Irish dances and soon some original dances of my own as well. Most of the dance melodies were found in "The Dance Music of Ireland (O'Neill, Francis)", a public domain source that is posted on IMSLP.
The ranges of these pieces are in line with the VSL Recorder library: Soprano (C5–A7), Alto (F4–A#6), Tenor (C4–F6), Bass (C3–D5), though I do not use the top few notes in these ranges as they are not practical for most players. Also note the bass recorder is actually a Great Bass recorder range. Perhaps I'll add a few pieces that use the traditional Bass recorder range as well over time.
Will add more over time so this will be a living work.
