Schulz Aria Divina Recordo
By Bryan Cather

The "Aria Divina" was Schulz's version of Recordo.  I know of one
locally (Arlington, Texas, near Dallas) that is not an art case but,
according to Recordo gurus Bob & Ginny Billings, it is the only
known example of the "C"-type Recordo.  While I'm sure there are
other "Aria Divina" pianos out there, they are probably the more common
"B"-type.  Incidentally, there is an Bardini art-cased Aria Divina on
page 76 of Harvey Roehl's "Player Piano Treasury"

 [ In the 1962 printing of "Player Piano Treasury" I found a Schulz
 [ advert on page 69: "The Venetian Grand, after the manner of
 [ Renaissance Italy, in walnut or mahogany."  Nice case design.
