Following on from Volume 1, published earlier this year, this book aims to provide even more music for intermediate to advanced players of the English (or “pendant”) ocarina. Just like the first volume, this is not a graded tutor book, but contains pieces of varying difficulty levels - although anyone who has successfully played the music in Volume 1 should have no difficulty with Volume 2.
Despite being a follow-up to Volume 1, this book is also designed to stand alone, and so the exercises from Volume 1 have been reproduced here, and will be particularly helpful for those who haven’t yet picked up a copy of the first volume. The pieces presented after the exercises, however, are all new, but still following the same structure of folk songs, then classical solos and duets, and finally an extended suite - in this case, selections from Handel’s Water Music.
The arrangements presented here are all released under the Creative Commons Attribution licence, allowing you to freely share, adapt and perform the music without requiring payment or special permission. The book is available both in print and as an ebook, for which you can pay whatever you like (or nothing) - the content is identical in both formats.
