The key piece from Disney's "Beauty and the Beast", "Tale as Old as Time" is deceptively low and quite tricky to play, so makes a great practice piece for intermediates.

On the flute / piccolo / recorder, I found it most comfortable to play this shifted up +7 semitones, so the note range is D-^G :)
