Kettle Drum - Andreas Sumerauer

Throughout the middle ages the kettle drum was popular in military- and also in dancemusic.
Like all the other drums it was considered by many as a demonic or even develish instrument.

This woodcut is taken from the "Musica Getutscht" from 1511.
Sebastian Virdung, the author of the work, did not have an all too good opinion of the percussion instruments
his comments can be found here.
