Did You Know?
The musical instrument heard on the opening credits and through much of the soundtrack is a hurdy gurdy. The hurdy gurdy is bowed stringed instrument like a violin but the bow is a rosined wooden wheel that is turned by a crank. There can be anywhere from 3 to 6 strings with some of the strings acting as drone strings. That is what makes the buzzing sound. The hurdy gurdy goes as far back as the Middle Ages. See more
