Mechanical Parlor Organ - Organina Thibouville

The Organina Thibouville is a small mechanical organ popular in the drawing rooms of the Parisian bourgeoisie. As a device designed for home entertainment, it played folding punched cards imprinted with dance tunes, excerpts from operas, patriotic songs, and hymns. This recording was made in Paris in 1981 with a restored organ and original cards.
