The David Munrow Collection

Back in 1986 I attended the Open Exhibition on "Musical Instruments" featuring the David Munrow Collection. Ofcourse, he had a very large collection of instruments, and those displayed were catalogued in a special brochure for the occasion. Unfortunately, I do not have a copy of it. Among other things including two, or more rare photos of Munrow there was a bar area where Ancestral Voices was being played on a television. Ancestral Voices was his last recorded public appearance as a tv presenter discussing old musical instruments. Not long after its completion Munrow took his own life. RS
