What a great collection, Scott!
I may be missing something, other than personal access to brain cells! but as far as I can see many of these are identified only by the file name.
Please would it be possible to have them all identified by artist, if poss, rough date, source manuscript in the case of medieval ones, etc.? (Or to politely tell me they are & I missed it!)

And here's another,
from the Luttrell Psalter (1300's Lincolnshire)

Notice the interesting mechanical line-up/artist's mistake?... and the utterly delighted expression on the musician's face :)

Best wishes,
Richard.

Hi Richard, yes I will add captions where possible, I just wanted to get alot of stuff up, I have loads more to do :)

Anne Marie Summers ( http://www.myspace.com/annemariesummers ) had a wonderful Symphony a bit like the one illustrated in the Psalter at the last gurdyfest, it had a keys like a normal keyboard, not like a hurdy-gurdy.
