Lituus, Again

The University of Edinburgh, at the request of Schola Cantorum Basiliensis, used computer modeling to redesign the lituus. The horn, made of pinewood with a cow horn mouth piece, was called for by Bach's ‘O Jesu Christ, meins lebens licht.’

Was it just me, or did anyone else want to hear more of the instrument, and less dancing about architecture?

This is freakin' cool news, though even if the presentation of the news is not entirely interactively ideal.

Bach misspelled the name of the instrument he wanted maybe?

The University of Kabanos has subsequently used computer modeling to redesign the accompanying chorale text:

Herr Jesu meines Lebens Licht /
Mein Hort / mein Trost / mein Zuversicht /
Auff Erden bin ich nur ein Gast /
Vnd drückt mich sehr der RICOLA!
