davidh Posted August 29, 2016 Share Posted August 29, 2016 Monteverdi's opera Orfeo requires a large variety of accompanying instruments. Much of the score is melody + figured bass, with the continuo players left to realise the notes. Among the instruments are "two organs of wood" and a regal. Does anyone have any information of what these organs might have been, and perhaps even a link to an online source with an illustration of anything similar, please?
