An Irish bandmaster named Joseph Haliday added woodwind-style keys to the military bugle in 1810. The invention created a flexible brass instrument that was widely used in bands, opera, social orchestras, parlor music, and even circus music. This book is the definitive study of the keyed bugle and its role in European and American music in the 19th century. Dudgeon provides essential information on keyed bugle makers, performers, method books, and solo and ensemble music. Chapter topics include the keyed bugle in Europe and in the United States, the revival, methods, literature, performance practice, and makers and sellers. Bibliography and index.

...with this splendid little book Ralph T. Dudgeon rescues the keyed bugle from oblivion...Dudgeon's study represents a significant addition to the history of music... (Journal Of The American Musical Instrument Society)

We should be grateful that Dudgeon has given us such a thorough compilation of keyed bugle history, at a time when there is no textbook devoted to...the flugel horn... (The Galpin Society)
