Early percussion instruments : from the Middle Ages to the Baroque by James Blades( Book )

13 editions published between 1976 and 1977 in English and held by 554 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Musical evidence for the use of early percussion instruments is slight, because their parts were hardly ever written down. Contemporary pictures, on the other hand, provide a wealth of information about their conversation and the contexts in which they were used. The authors describe in this book all the known percussion instruments from the Middle ages to the Baroque; trace their historical development; and give practical guidance on their playing technique. -- from back cover
