Topic: Researching the history of the Woodwinds
I am working on a Research paper, with multi-media presentation, about The Evolution of the Flute, Oboe, and Basson from the Renaissance to Barouque era.
Does anyone know of any good web-sites that I could to for illistrations or pictures of the early instruments?
Also, does anyone know of a good resource for information regarding the invention of the Bassoon? I can find data that states that it emerged from the shawn, like the oboe, but I'm having difficulty finding any specific details.
