Piper on the Mountain (John)
I have played the recorder since my childhood, and for the greater part of my life I have preferred to ignore the book and to make up my own music as I go along. Some years ago, Peacock Press published a little book saying how I do it, but this appears now to be out of print. I have therefore had a copy scanned, and have posted it here. The art is not difficult to acquire, and it will give a lot of pleasure both to the player himself and to his friends.
The copyright in the illustrations is held by Linda Owen, who drew them, but a letter requesting permission to post this copy here has come back "addressee gone away". To Linda: if you come across this, do please get in touch.
I do not have the print masters, and the scanning has been of an ordinary production copy. These were printed with attractive grey-mottled covers, hence the mottled backgrounds. My usual thanks to Mike Shaw and The Cabinet Office (www.thecabinetoffice.co.uk) for the scanning.
