The Crumhorn was an Elizabethan Musical Instrument which was found popular not only in England, but eventually – throughout Europe. Revived today, the instrument is a curved Flute which is capped at one end. Double reeded, The Crumhorn produces a ''flattened tone'' in various Keys. A common component in many of Queen Elizabeth's Courtly ''diversions'' – The Crumhorn was also used in various Religious (Music) performances, again for it's ''low and respectful'' tones.
