Humanity has blown horns and trumpets of various makes and models, lengths and diameters since prehistoric times. In Horns and Trumpets of the World, the eminent scholar Jeremy Montagu surveys the vast range in time and type of this instrument that has accompanied everything in human history from the war cry to the formal symphony, from the hunting call to the modern jazz performance. No work on this topic offers as much detail or so many illustrations—over 150, in fact—of this remarkable instrument. Montagu’s examination looks at horns constructed from seaweed, cane, bamboo, shell, wood, ivory, and metal and encompasses instruments of the Bible, from the Bronze and Iron Ages, the Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, and Classical periods, and, following the Industrial Revolution, the modern era.
