You Wish We Waltz

My friend John has a Victorian-style punchcard music box. We put the punched strip for a well-known Christmas carol in upside down, and this is what we got.

(Eerie rattling sounds at the beginning; don't be alarmed.)

This has to be the most amazing thing I've heard in quite some time. No exaggeration.

Thanks for posting!

I wonder if other Christmas carols sound as good upside down. Of course Good King Wenceslas does. This is really beautiful; it sounds like Renaissance lute music.
