In this volume, twenty-three scholars pay tribute to the life and work of Joachim Braun with musicological essays covering
the breadth of Professor Braun's several fields of research. Topics covered include Jewish music and music in ancient Israel/Palestine,
musical cultures of the Baltic States, and the historical study of musical instruments. Its collected essays range in approach
from archival to analytical and from iconographic to critical, and consider a wide range of subjects, including the music
of Jewish displaced persons during and after World War II, Roman and Byzantine organology, medieval hymnody, and Soviet musical
life under Stalin.
