I started to make my music available online through SibeliusMusic.com in March 2006. It looked like an ideal outlet for music for odd combinations of instruments, simply because other composers had already put up such a wide variety. It didn't work so well in practice, mainly because there was just so much music on the site that it was difficult to find any particular items.SibeliusMusic no longer exists. It has been succeeded by Score Exchange which, in spite of its name, is strictly commercial.

These are the scores I uploaded to SibeliusMusic. I can supply copies to anyone who wants them, and I may someday publish them elsewhere.

The Shores of Botany Bay for flute trio (can be transposed for other instruments).

A traditional Irish-Australian tune that I originally arranged for recorders (it appears in Recorder Playbook) but is just as effective for other melody instruments. Easy! Free!

New Haven for recorder trio or quartet.

A very easy arrangement of a hymn tune from Southern Harmony. Free!

Lady Ann Bothwell's Lament for soprano recorder and violin, and
Sleepy Body for alto recorder (or flute) and violin.

Two arrangements of sets of variations by Geminiani on Scottish airs; moderately difficult; playable unaccompanied by recorder or almost any other melody instrument.

The Streets of Forbes for two clarinets with bass clarinet or bassoon.

I later transcribed this arrangement for recorders and published it through Cootamundra Music as one of the Two Slow Airs. Moderate difficulty.

O Thou That Art So Cruell for two equal instruments.

A vocal duet by Thomas Morley transcribed for a pair of instruments. It suits flutes or alto/tenor recorders as shown but can be transposed for other instruments.
