Brazilian Folklore Music
by Elosia Mattson and Wilmer Miller
Ames, Iowa

These simple duets are played on ténor recorders by Elosia Mattson and Wilmer Miller. The total time is nearly 14 minutes. The first fifteen songs are Folclore Brasileiro, the sixteenth is Português and the last two are Russo and Frances. They are performed from the book Minha Doce Flauta Doce, 2nd volume, collected by Mário Mascarenhas. These short pieces are played with Wilmer as the first voice and Elosia the second. From number 4 on, they are repeated with the voices switched the second time through.
