Aylesbury Hundred

Aylesbury Hundred was a hundred in the ceremonial county of Buckinghamshire, England. It was situated in the centre of the county and was bounded on the east by Hertfordshire and on the west by Oxfordshire; until at least the time of the Domesday Survey in 1086 there were 18 hundreds in Buckinghamshire. It has been suggested however that neighbouring hundreds had become more associated in the 11th century so that by the end of the 14th century the original or ancient hundreds had been consolidated into 8 larger hundreds. Aylesbury became the name of the hundred formed from the combined 11th century hundreds of Aylesbury and Stone although these original names still persisted in official records until at least the early part of the 17th century; the court leet for Aylesbury hundred was located at Aylesbury. Aylesbury hundred comprised the following ancient parishes and hamlets, allocated to their respective 13th century hundred: List of hundreds of England and Wales

Baroque violin

A Baroque violin is a violin set up in the manner of the baroque period of music. The term includes original instruments which have survived unmodified since the Baroque period, as well as instruments adjusted to the baroque setup, modern replicas. Baroque violins have become common in recent decades thanks to informed performance, with violinists returning to older models of instrument to achieve an authentic sound; the differences between a Baroque violin and a modern instrument include the size and nature of the neck, bridge, bass bar, tailpiece. Baroque violins are always fitted with gut strings, as opposed to the more common metal and synthetic strings on a modern instrument, played with a bow made on the baroque model rather than the modern Tourte bow. Baroque violins are played without a shoulder rest; the development of the violin started in the 16th century. "Renaissance violins" of this period are of a wide variety of sizes, from small pochettes through descant and tenor instruments, as a consort.

Around 1610, Giovanni Paolo Cima wrote the first sonatas for violin, marking the start of its use as a solo instrument. The size and broad design of the violin became consistent towards the start of the Baroque period, at about 1660. In subsequent centuries, there were a number of gradual changes to the bow; the main effect of these changes was to increase the overall sound and volume of the instrument, to improve the instrument's performance in higher registers, to enable longer legato phrases. Today's Baroque violins are set up as far as possible in the manner of violins used from 1650 to 1750. There was no single standard model of violin in the Baroque period; as now, instruments were made by individual craftsmen, to different fashions. The instruments used to play the work of Claudio Monteverdi at the beginning of the Baroque period differed somewhat from those of late Baroque composers; as a result, a modern player who plays repertoire from throughout the Baroque period but can afford only one instrument has to make a compromise with an instrument that has recognisably Baroque characteristics, but matches the instruments of any one part of the Baroque imperfectly.

The neck of a Baroque violin can be at a shallower angle to the body of the instrument than is the case on a modern violin, but again there was a great deal of variation. The neck angle can result in less pressure being exerted on the bridge from the strings; the old neck was generally glued to the violin's ribs and nailed from the inner top-block through the thicker, more sloped neck-heel, while the modern neck is mortised into an opening cut into the ribs and upper edge of the violin. The bridge in turn is shaped differently, with less mass and greater flexibility in the upper half, owing to the high placement of its "eyes"—holes on either side; the fingerboard on a Baroque violin is shorter than that on a modern violin. During the Baroque period, the use of higher positions on the violin increased. In 1600, the highest note in regular use was the C above the E-string, while by 1700 the A one octave above the E-string was common. Virtuoso violinists throughout the period continued to push the boundaries of possibility, with Locatelli reputedly playing in 22nd position.

Baroque violins are strung with gut E, A and D strings, either a plain gut G or a metal-wound gut G. The guts in question are those of sheep, wound into a material referred to as "catline", referred to as cat-gut. Baroque bows look straight or bent outwards in the middle, with an elegant "swan-bill" pointed head, they are made from strong, heavy snakewood. By contrast, a modern bow is made from pernambuco and has a marked inwards bend when the hair is relaxed, has a "hatchet" head at right-angles to the stick. Bows underwent more changes within the Baroque period. Bows of the earlier 17th century were used interchangeably between viols, they were short and light, well-suited for dance music. Italian music of the first half of the 18th century, for instance the work of Arcangelo Corelli, was played with a longer bow better suited to long, singing notes, it was in response to this continued desire for longer, more legato playing that the inward curve was introduced in the mid 18th-century, the modern bow derives from designs made by François Tourte in the 18th century.

The screw mechanism for changing hair tension is first mentioned in a French shop inventory of 1747. It was not universally accepted for over a decade as players were happy with "clip-in" models: a removable frog held in place by hair tension in a mortise carved into the stick, its tension adjusted by shims between hair and frog surface. However, baroque-style bows produced today universally adopt the screw mechanism. A Baroque violin is played in a "historical manner", using a technique and musical style intended to resemble actual baroque performance as far as possible; because this style had fallen out of use long before recording technology was invented, modern performers rely on documentary evidence to recreate a Baroque-style technique. They apply this technique to the music of the period, looking in particular for facsimile or critical editions of the music to play from, as many editions include editorial "improvements" which depart from Baroque practice. Early violins and violas were held against the left chest, below the shoulder.

By the 18th century, the typical position was a little higher, on top of the shoulder, with t
