Recorder Home Page, established and maintained by Nicholas Lander, the biggest and best (to my knowledge, at least) resource for recorder players on the Net.
Stichting Blokfluit Archive, a pair of large databases created by Walter van Hauwe & Paul Leenhouts:
• Catalogue for Contemporary Blockflute Music (CCBM)
• Catalogue for Historic Recorder Repertoire (CHRR)
Access to these databases is now free of charge but registration is required so that usage patterns can be monitored.
Orpheus Music, Armidale, NSW, Australia’s biggest publisher (and probably biggest retailer) of recorder music.
If you were looking for Dragon Early Music, Brisbane, you are out of luck – they closed down in 2009.

Music Australia is a comprehensive online information service based on the resources of the Australian Music Centre, the National Library and the various State libraries.
