A modern "minstrel" plays an old instrument. Prof. William H. Stubbins of the U-M Music School is shown playing a recorder, or "fipple flute." The recorder is an 800-year-old musical instrument that is still widely played. Three sizes of the ancient instrument are shown here: a small "sopranino" protrudes from Stubbins' pocket and a large, bass recorder lies on the music rack. The University Extension Service is offering a night course in the recorder next semester.

McArtor plays a spinetta, or virginal, from the collection. The instrument, believed to be about 350-years-old is one of the choice items from the collection and one of the few in playing condition. He accompanies Prof. William H. Stubbins of the U-M School of Music who is playing a recorder, a type of flute nearly 800 years old. The two recently gave a recital on their ancient instruments at a U-M Extension Service class in "The Music of the Recorder."
