Free public domain sheet music from IMSLP / Petrucci Music Library
The instrument is a relative of the recorder - the sound is produced in the same way. In the 18th & 19th centuries it was a wooden instrument, often with keys, blown through a bone mouthpiece fashioned to resemble an oboe reed. Another form was the double flageolet, an instrument with two bores connected to one mouthpiece. The French flageolet was a smaller instrument, often without keys. Many flageolets had interchangeable heads, to enable an additional playing mode as a piccolo (or flute). In the late 19th century versions of the instrument began to be made in metal, creating the tin whistle or penny whistle popular in traditional music today (equivalent pitch to descant recorder). More recently, a "low D" whistle has been made, an octave below the standard 'D' whistle.
