Flemish and Dutch instruments

Evans gave his instruments from the Netherlands numbers prefixed by 'G', thus grouping them with German work. However, Flemish instruments are now considered to constitute a distinctive tradition. One of the most important early centres, Louvain, is represented here by the work of Johan Motter [1] and Adriaan Zeelst [4], while the nocturnal by Michiel Coignet [7] shows that the Louvain standard of fine engraving was carried on in Antwerp.
