In Music I'd Like To Hear
A Tromba Marina Player
Thanks! I’ll have to check that out.
There is some brilliant tromba marine playing to be found on this recording: Johann Valentin Rathgaber: ‘Messe von Muri’ and Concertos Ensemble Arcimboldo
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
Sort of very elaborate Diddley Bow!
It would be fun!
I love these, wish I had one!
an early revival instrument ? I have read that there are no original examples, only illustrations.. It would be fun to make some of these
Hi Michael, there seem to be a few extant examples. http://www.trombamarina.com/instruments/tromba-marina/ The instrument is quite well documented too. Very interesting sound, by the way. I heard one playing, a long time ago, but right now can’t remember where exactly.

My religion consists of a humble admiration of the illimitable superior spirit who reveals himself in the slight details we are able to perceive with our frail and feeble mind.
