The highlight of these concerts was the performance of a specially commissioned work.

Many important twentieth-century composers contributed to this corpus of works, including Lennox Berkeley, York Bowen, Arnold Cooke, Gordon Jacob and Edmund Rubbra. This book is the first to explore this repertoire in depth. Each of the Dolmetsch works is catalogued and discussed in detail.

Drawing on much previously unexplored correspondence and manuscript scores held in the Dolmetsch Archive in Haslemere, Andrew Mayes places this music in the wider context of the twentieth-century recorder revival and surveys the influence these works have had on recorder music of the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. His analyses of the works includes composers programme notes, supplemented where possible with information directly from the composers.
