I am currently reading Ross Duffin's excellent book How Equal Temperament Ruined Harmony. I wanted to find some examples of some of what he discusses in the book and found these two excellent videos by Alice M. Chuaqui Baldwin:

She provides excellent musical examples to illustrate her discussion. Highly recommended.
