Maison Souchette, Anger

A very beautiful arrangement of popular song "Ma Normandie" by French flutist/composer 

Charles de Cottignies (1805- ). It is contained in a rare 19th solo French flute music manuscript.

5-Key flute labeled Maison Souchette, Anger (maker not listed in Langwill). From the research I have done Souchette was a very famous maker of mechanical instruments. This flute has been restored by Jon Cornia, although the photos below are still pre-restoration.  The wood of the head joint is particularly beautiful and interesting. A=c.438
