Full description for Music in Ancient Israel/Palestine
This is not a study of "music in the Bible" but an in-depth investigation of the historical periods and cultures that influenced the music of the region and its people. Braun combines significant archaeological findings - musical instruments, terra cotta and metal figures, etched stone illustrations, mosaics - with evidence drawn from written texts and anthropological, sociological, and linguistic sources.
