    Johann Valentin Rathgaber: ‘Messe von Muri’ and Concertos
    Ensemble Arcimboldo

  2. It’s mentioned in a one line (!) poem by Apollinaire in an elaborate that only works in French.

    CHANTRE
    Et l’unique cordeau des trompettes marines

      The instrument is quite well documented too.
