First Post

Welcome, one and all, and thanks for taking the time to read!  This blog was created as a project for the Advanced Brass Ensemble Literature class offered at the University of Iowa.  With this blog, I'd like to take a closer look at a subject which I know little about: modern reproductions of early brass instruments, and the performance of some of the earliest music written specifically for brass.  My hope is that I can bring together some of the information found on the web on early brass instruments and ensembles, making it a little easier to understand our origins as musicians.
