Renaissance music Samples???

Wasn't sure if this is the right forum for it but, Im interested in getting VST samples for renaissance music and early Baroque. Now before you say "Hey pal, you got a harpsichord in Dimension pro!" Im talking about mostly the instruments like the spinett, virginals, viols, lutes, Racketts, sackbutts etc. Im talking about teh instruments that have fallen out of favor but at one tyme were the premiere instruments. I have always been interested in this music but only got interested in Samples because i got " EW ethnic world 4", then i said geez it seems that there are 50 different "world music" sample programs but i havn't seen one for early western music instruments. What up wit dat? Anywho, does anyone know if such a sample library exists?
I checked East west and NI and All the other companies but haven't yet found one. I found one called "rare instruments" but its mostly "folk" instruments not historical ones. Any one have any idears?

    ... or SOUNDSCAN 23: Historical Instruments Sample CD. You can add authenticity in Dimension Pro by selecting a historically accurate tuning from the thousands of included SCALA files.

    I picked up the Early Patches set several months ago and have been very happy with the samples. I've tweaked them a bit to suit me, but it's a good deal for Medieval and early Renassance instruments. No sackbuts or keyboard instruments, but lots of winds, plucked strings and percussion.
