Puzzle Description:

The crumhorn in an instrument best left in the Middle Ages. The thing sounds like a wooden kazoo, with a distinct "dwaa" sound.

The third link is the best "quality" and gives a full range of crumhorn sounds.

the "third link?"

AFter trial and error, I was able to place the bottom row 5 from C10-14. Then the puzzle fell into place. I don't know if that is logically done or not.

Look for the row of 1's at the bottom. :)

Bug, if you go to the link at recorderhomepage, it has 3 links to crumhorns being played.

Well, it was the middle ages and all they had were crummy musicians...

This was surprisingly tough!
#15: Kristen Coolman (kristen) on Jun 2, 2011
Darn, I thought it would be easy, with the (I thought) obvious edge logic on the bottom row!
#16: Jota (Jota) on Jun 3, 2011

I like how the one guy put on an Elizabethan collar over his T-shirt. :)

How interesting. I like your puzzle, Kristen, even though it was really, really, difficult (if you rely on pure logic).

Thanks for the link, Jota. I like this one too:

I am in a group of medieval music players, and we certainly have a crumhorn.

(that's not me)
#22: Kristen Coolman (kristen) on Sep 11, 2019
Ahh, then you know well the plaintive, ducklike call of the crumhorn. :)
#23: Claudia (clau_bolson) on Sep 11, 2019
Yes, that's how we call it - "the duck" (proper name in Spanish is "cromorno")
#24: Kristen Coolman (kristen) on Sep 11, 2019
nice!
