Playing the flute, the galoubet, and the drum

I've often wondered what the black figures playing the flute and drum at the same time might sound like in Andrea Mantegna (1505-6) The Introduction of the Cult of Cybele at Rome and Master of Frankfurt (15th century) Festival of the Archers.

I came across this piece YouTube while searching for the galoubet - that flute with three holes close to the base in Master of Frankfurt. To hear the galoubet and drum fast forward to 2:03.
