    Picture 7 of 22 has caption "blind man's bluff" but I think it is mis-labelled.
    How do you play a variation of "tag" by sitting down
    and covering your own eyes with both hands?

    I say the artwork depicts Red Light Green Light.

    #4 is the St. Matthew Passion; 16 is the famous portrait of the blind organist Landini from the Squarcialupi Codex.

    The set contains very interesting manuscripts of some famous and beautiful pieces; it is interesting to see the various styles of writing and scoring, especially that of Stravinsky. The set is slightly mis-names, though, since the scores themselves are, for the most part, not particularly beautiful

    I think Stravinsky was just as much a calligrapher as his Mediaeval counterparts. The Most beautiful MS scores I've seen are by Stravinsky, Bach, and Mozart.
