 Today's post is the story of going down a rabbit hole...

When I was a kid, there was a board game that I loved called Music Maestro all about musical instruments. (Incidentally, when searching for a link to the game, I found that there was a sequel – Music Maestro II! – and that the original game is considered “vintage” as it came out in 1982. Sheesh.) The game included cassette tapes so that you could hear what the instruments sounded like. There were the usual suspects – piano, violin, trumpet – but also some odd historical instruments, like the rebec and the serpent. It turns out that there’s an entire website dedicated to the serpent, which I found thanks to Wormwoodiana  and their recent post. Despite all its faults, Isn’t the internet amazing?
