Recorder Heaven...

A few years ago, my 4th grade students and I performed an arrangement I had made
of the rock classic song, "Stairway To Heaven," by the rock band Led Zeppelin.

I just learned that the album that that song is from, Led Zeppelin IV, is 40 years old today!

On that particular song, written by guitarist Jimmy Page and singer Robert Plant,
multi-instrumentalist John Paul Jones, typically the band's bass player and keyboardist,
arranged and performed all the recorder parts that can be heard in the intro to the song!

Please have a listen, and try to identify not only the recorder, but all four parts!
