Reviews - What do customers think about Music in Ancient Israel/Palestine: Archaeological, Written and Caomparative Sources (Bible in Its World)?

Challenging Survey of Ancient Music in Israel/Pal.  Oct 15, 2004
This is well researched and documented look into music from Ancient Israel/Palestine. Braun exhaustively looks at the all the evidence, both archaeological, Biblical, etc. to gain a sense of the music of the times, but cultic, private and public.

His sense of always trying to weave the very best conclusions from all the evidence is convincing, although for most of us readers who do not have all the experience of reading the vast literature on the subject, one is lost as to most reasonable views. Braun helps by providing his own interpretations of such, and for this reason this work is helpful.

He breaks his investigation into timeframes: Stone AGe, Bronze Age, Iron Age, Hellinistic-Roman. These are each accompanied by one of the books strongest features besides the documented bibliography is the wealth of fine photos and drawings to illustrate the evidence as the commentary alludes.
