pastorpest Medieval Music for recorders (11) RE: Medieval Music for recorders 02 Mar 00

If you are a beggar for punishment and like scholarly stuff then see these two books:

"Anthology of Medieval Music" edited by Richanrd Hoppin and published by W. W. Norton & Company

"Medieval Instrumental Dances" by Timothy J. McGee and published by Indianna University Press. This book puts in modern notation all the known instrumental dances before 1430.

I recall reading or being taught somewhere that medieval music does not specify which insturments are to be used so that nothing is actually for a wind instruments, string instuments, etc.
