Does anyone on the list know where I could find information about how
thunder was created as a sound effect on the early modern stage? I'm
familiar with Leslie Thomson's valuable article on 'The Meaning of
Thunder and Lightning' but he doesn't (so far as I recall) give much
information on the mechanisms used, other than that they involved drums.
