Details from Denmark: 3 Trombones on the Ceiling

Yesterday I added a pair of details to the caption below from the Trombone History Timeline (17th century, 1st half). I will also soon be adding them to the HubPages article, How to Hold a Sackbut: The Grip of the Early Trombone in Pictures. Here are the details, along with the full image and caption originally included.

      I don’t know of anything that specific, although you may be interested in Nick Byrne’s excellent CD, “Back from Oblivion.”
