Here is a quick link to a very interesting project. A team has worked to recreate a medieval organ. None survived the reformation so they’ve faced enormous obstacles researching this project. A story on the BBC lets you hear a sound that has not been heard for centuries.

Sometimes something is just cool. FOUNDATION MUSICK’S MONUMENT is cool. Here is how they describe themselves:
The Stichting Musick’s Monument produces Historical Art Productions, partly in association with scholars from the Chair of Humanities of the University of Amsterdam (UvA). Pictures, music and text are integrated: You will hear music from the same period and the same area of origin as the visual materials; these are supplemented with explanatory text. From this combination evolves something like a Gesamtkunstwerk (a total work of art), a complete new way of digital art presentation.
This page has a great video. Be patient. Some things on this site take quite a bit of time to load but it’s worth the wait.
