Just as a reminder: when you reply to a posting on the list, either
you need to do a "group reply" or "reply to all", or you'll have to
make sure you're cc-ing minstrel at pbm.com.

It's on the web at http://www.pbm.com/~lindahl/ap_huw/, facsimile and
bibliogrpahy and discography.

I'd love to get the others on the web; if someone's interested in
mailing me a photocopy of a facsimile (not transcription, there are
copyright issues for transcriptions), then I'll put it on the web.

We know that music in other areas evolved a lot between 1600 and
1800. For example, irish harp music is thought to have changed a lot.
So I'm not sure if "pretty good" applies.

We'd love to see articles like that, and when published on the web,
you're much more likely to reach an appreciative audience.
