The consort was made up of a bass flute in F, two tenors in C and an alto in G. floten The fingerings are shown in the treaty for each individual instrument. fingering My reconstruction of the instruments was inspired by the drawings included in the book that also coincide with those published later in another treaty: Music instrumentalis deudsch by Martin Agricola, published in Wittenberg in 1529 agricola_dayton-miller_2   P1010355
