210pp, illustrations. Describes the curious (possibly not entirely genuine) history of this secretive society, including complete musical scores from its archive. The author recounts the origin of the practice of employing a solo violinist at post-Reformation funerals; the careers of the greatest Funerary Violinists, such as Herr Hieronymous Gratchenfleiss and Pierre Dubuisson, and the 19th-century purge which led to the tradition's almost complete obliteration.
