Isle of Man: Historic Musical Instruments from Manx National Heritage Collections Made Available Online

Isle of Man: Historic Musical Instruments from Manx National Heritage Collections Made Available Online. “Over 70 musical instruments from the Manx National Heritage’s archives have been photographed by Dr Matthew Hill from MINIM-UK using high-end digital photography to produce top-quality digital images. The instruments include a barrel organ known as the ‘Santon Seraphim’, which may well be the oldest surviving musical instrument from a Manx church; a bugle given to Captain James Bridson by a French soldier during the evacuation of Le Havre in 1940 and an electric guitar used by rock band ‘Twisted Angels’, part of the thriving Manx music scene in the early 2000s.” I did write about this project in November 2015 but now we have a launch date: October of this year.
