Trombone in Sacred Music

I just added the below image and caption to the Trombone History Timeline (16th century). Although the image is simpler in several respects, it bears an interesting resemblance to the well-known copperplate engraving by Philippe Galle from 1595 (see 16th century timeline).

c. 1530—Augsburg, Germany: Hans Burgkmair (or his circle) paints a pair of images, Concert of Sacred Music and Concert of Secular Music, on wood panels. Concert of Sacred Music includes trombone and cornetto players performing with a group of singers in front of a large music stand (see below image; public domain).
