    Hello. I have been reading and listening to early music lately and I would like to hear comments on the trumpets that were used in Guillaume Dufay's works like "Les Batailles", "L'homme armé", and some motets (supremum est mortalibus bonum series)... What kind of trumpets were mostrly used at those times ? (late Middle Ages) Are those trumpets like today's known "Rennaisance natural trumpets"? Similar to the Baroque natural trumpets? Were Medieval trumpets different? In wich ways? I will appreciate your comments about it. Thank you in advance. !

    I'd have crack open the books to answer your question, but I just want to comment that I got a chuckle from your choice, for a historic instrument thread, of "XIV", instead of "fourteenth" or "14th".

    Well played. ;-)


    (@ gunshowtickets - what does Sub'd mean, please?)

    Subscribed, for later reading. When I did my research, it was from renaissance on, so I'm curious.

    I type this as the great horny owl family is hooting in my neighbourhood. I would like to know how they do it, because you can hear them from over a mile away. Particularly entertaining when one snags a coney, which I'm all to grateful for them to do. The other houses are too close for the .22.

    Sorry for the confusing "XIV century".... I wanted to mean 14th century. My English is sometimes too basic to be posting here . Thanks for your pacience! :oops:

    Si necesita que se quiere traducir pero no está seguro de la traducción, hablo español.

    Your english skills don't seem too bad. Besides, we're here to learn and to help!

    I found the thread title entertaining.

    Read up "The Trumpet" by Edward Tarr. Everything you need to know is there, in one handy book.

    So . . is that a note to yourself, to the OP, or to the readership?
