By Goerg Wilhem von Hantelmann. This manual is designed to help musicians engaged in the art of rendering period music authentically on instruments of the Renaissance Era such as the crumhorn or other capped-reed instruments. What distinguishes these instruments is the fact that the double-reed is not blown directly by the player's lips but rather indirectly by means of a so-called wind-cap (or capped reed).

Exercises are introduced at appropriate points to assist the player in applying and perfecting a fairly easy technique of fingering.
