Strike that. I went back and looked at my copies. The Kettlewell is hammered dulcimer; the Jones is the one I was thinking of for use of modes (not much period music), but the one I was thinking of for period music on the dulcimer is Carrie Crompton's Renaissance Dulcimer. This is also a Mel Bay publication. I believe she may have other titles out, as well.
