Check out this piece of history:

Lovely - thanks for digging this one out and sharing.  M. Thome has gifted us with a mirror from the past, and I learned much by digging in a little deeper.  Thanks!  

Here is more on his ensemble, which has expanded his work with period instruments (we love the translations on the fly - o, this modern age...):

Ivo Papasov laughs at your primitive time signatures.

It\'s a clarinet (intermediate in range between alto and bass) fashioned according to a new scale ... see

Offered for sale (expensive!) by Stephen Fox (Canadian firm).
If I had money and they wrote hymns in that scale I might buy one.

Ukelele plus clarinet makes for an interesting combination.

Playing a clarinet badly is better than not playing a clarinet at all.

In Europe, it\'s an alternate name for an alto clarinet.  Sometimes they make them straight.

It\'s an interesting experiment, but not likely to go anywhere.

You could play the same music you have now with instruments tuned to Just Intonation (aka Pure Intonation), but that\'s a whole \'nuther pile of worms, as you\'d need a different clarinet for each key.  Music would sound nicer, though.  (Consider the harmonies a Barbershop Quartet put together)
