Cover. The magic of a regal gamelan lies almost as much in the mystic shapes of its instruments as in the music those instruments produce. In style and workmanship, one of the most splendid gamelan ensembles in the West remains that brought to England from Java by Sir Stamford Raffles and now in the collection of the British Museum. On our cover is a detail of one of the magnificent lacquered, gilded and crowned birds that forms the crossbar of the great gong ageng, centerpiece of the gamelan, pictured in full on page 24.
