Baldwin, who is part of the Records of Early English Drama project on Cheshire, studies both trained and untrained musicians, both professional and amateur, who provided entertainment at guild feasts, in alehoues, and in gentry households. The four chapters discuss the music in context, music in the city, music and the gentry, and the musical instruments. Annotation c. Book News, Inc.,Portland, OR
