Last Quarter's Donation Flute
Anonymous graciously donated last quarter’s raffle flute. It is a Xavier Quijas Yxayotl clay flute and it is stunning. The main flute has five finger holes and produces a lovely warm sound. As it typical of Xavier’s flutes, it also has two higher, bird-like flute mechanisms that sound like ocarinas. They are located at the top of the flute, toward the main mouthpiece. The sound is produced by blowing into the slits. There is also a round hole at the top of the flute. When you blow into it, the sound is that of the death whistle. Its length is 27 inches. It is 3 inches across. It is truly an interesting flute and it is highly prized, like all of Xavier’s musical creations. Notice the exquisite detail of the faces on the flute.
Thank you, Anonymous, for your kindness and generous support of the World Flute Society.
Winner: Jack Persely
