Overview

This study, which surveys German instrumental traditions from about 1350 to 1520, falls into three parts. The opening chapters treat the medieval classification of instrumental music into two groups of loud and soft, and discuss the individual instruments and the ensembles in both categories. Subsequent chapters provide an overview of the major patronage institutions of medieval Germany, which for instrumental music were the numerous cities and courts of the region. The concluding part of the book focuses on the sources and the performance practices of medieval instrumentalists.
