The baryton is a bowed string instrument similar to the viol, but distinguished by an extra set of plucked strings. It was in regular use in Europe until the end of the 18th century. The baryton can be viewed as a sort of augmented bass viol

The baryton is a unique string instrument that provides both bowed melody and plucked accompaniment simultaneously. It emerged in the Baroque era as a solo, self-accompanying viol and was later adopted as a virtuoso melodic instrument to enhance the dramatic arias of the day. A History of the Baryton and Its Music: King of Instruments, Instrument of Kings is the only reference available on this intriguing instrument. This presents a detailed history of the baryton, guidance on playing technique, information on its design and manufacture, descriptions and photos of extant instruments, and a repertoire of hitherto unpublished music. Carol A. Gartrell details the origins and development of the baryton through the instruments that have survived, and through a unique collection of music representing different styles and genres. In addition to a bibliography and an index, the book concludes with two galleries containing an extensive inventory: the first provides detailed descriptions of all extant instruments and more than 20 photographs, while the second gallery catalogs extant manuscripts and supplies a representative selection of complete transcriptions, illustrating the range and variety of baryton music and providing musicians with previously unpublished music they could perform. Complete with a selected discography of baryton recordings, A History of the Baryton and Its Music is an interesting and necessary resource for the musicologist, organologist, and performer.

Gartrell's history inflates the historical importance of an instrument that no longer has relevance. This book is written in a pedantic style, as if authored by a school teacher rather than from a scholarly perspective. It's hard to understand why the author feels a need to condescend to her readers, but alas, this is what she does. Why anyone would feel the need to rely on this book for any purpose other than as a cure for insomnia remains a mystery. The price of the book is so far out of line, that I can only conclude that the publisher doesn't expect to sell many copies, and is trying in vain to recoup the basic printing costs of the run of books by jacking up the per copy price.
