NotesFrom 1697 on, Michiel Parent (a performer as well as a maker of wind instruments) was a member of the ‘Collegium Musicum’ which performed in Amsterdam in the summer and in The Hague in the winter. Notes from van Acht.

Made double recorders of which he claimed to be the inventor. These had complex bores. A single example of his alto recorders survives, with a short foot and a remarkably narrow bore. He also made bassoons (Bouterse, 2001).
