Monster organistrum plus monstrous psaltery

For some reason this turned up on the Wire harp list... but what a beast!

Pity she only gets to play her end, and lacks a passing apocryphal king for the other! (Thanks so much, Susann Palmer, for that reference.)
We might prefer not to talk about the amazingly pspurious spsaltery, or the fact that the sound's all dubbed on afterwards. Or the interesting realistically glowing windows and pillars behind them.

But it's a colossal organistrum, and I'm jealous!
Pity about the cost.... :(

Salutations,
Richard.

Great sound, thanks for the link Richard, they really should have got two people playing the organistrum though!
