Abstract

Sachs says about jingling rings, "Until around 1600, the number three prevailed for them; later five is the rule." He goes on to say of rings after ca. 1806, "... Only then is the hanging removed, which, like all rattle ingredients, is a remnant of lower levels of culture."

Sachs writes about the variety of contexts in which the triangle is found including 1) the written account of the triangle in the Wurttemburg Inventory of 1589 2) German and French tapestries depicting the triangle played by elegant ladies 3) Praetorius's writings 4) Marsenne's writing 5) the triangle often paired with hurdy-gurdy 6) the triangle as found in Janissary-influenced military/ceremonial music 7) the triangle as a child's instrument
