bagpipeAre you writing a story set in the Medieval or Renaissance Periods?  If so, here is a site that might be of help – The Guide to Medieval and Renaissance Instruments.

Instruments include but are not limited to the bagpipe, rebec, cornamuse, and recorder.  Each listing includes a variety of the following: one or more images of the instrument, a history, a sound file, and a list of additional resoures including print and online material. 

Warning:  Some of the sound files can take a while to load.  Thus my husband and I were both quite startled when my wee laptop started blaring bagpipe.  Not blaring, says my husband, wailing.  According to him, thunder is more calming.

Special thanks to Adam Cohen of Winning Writers for bringing this site to my attention.
