West Cornwall Museum Mechanical Music (post 16C barrel pianos, musical boxes, organettes, mech. singing birds, etc. - SDLB-248)

£4.99

Product description

The history of automatic musical instruments - that is instruments which could produce music without the need of a skilled performer - goes back just about 2000 years. It was not until the 16th century, though, that anything like the faithful interpretation of music became possible, and this was due to the advances then being made in precision engineering and clockmaking
