    The fingering for the Baroque rackett (pictured in your post) is actually fairly similar to a modern alto recorder in F throughout much of its range (in a different octave, of course), though things get a little weird at the extremes of the range.

    If you haven’t found any examples of racketts being played yet, this page has a few notes played upon a Renaissance rackett, and this YouTube video demonstrates what a Baroque rackett sounds like (at least, in the hands of an unskilled player).

    Thanks, Godfrey. I hadn’t heard these.
