Instruments of the Cyfarthfa band

Herbert, T. and Myers, A. (1988) Instruments of the Cyfarthfa band. The Galpin Society Journal, 41. pp. 2-10.


The musical instruments in the museum at Cyfarthfa Castle, South Wales, are evidence of the vital role played by the Cyfarthfa Band (1840-ca. 1912) in the evolution of British brass bands. It was particularly notable for its private patronage and its unique tendency to avoid instruments by English makers.
