The Stichting Blokfluit (Recorder Foundation) is a non-profit organisation which aims to stimulate and promote the recorder's repertoire in every possible field by making it worldwide accessible for the public.
One of the foundation's most important activities is the publication on the net of two comprehensive catalogues, the Catalogue of Contemporary Blockflute Music (CCBM) and the Catalogue of Historical Recorder Repertoire (CHRR). ..
The CCBM is an idea of Walter van Hauwe, founder of the Stichting Blokfluit. When he started this project, around 1988, he had about 400 titles of original recorder music written after the year 1900, while he estimated another 300 works still undiscovered. Now, 20 years later, more than 5000 titles can be found in the CCBM, presumably 95% of the world-wide total. ..“ Visit website for more information. (ed.)
