The cornetto was many times described as the instrument best able to imitate the human voice.
What does that mean? Is it the timbre of the sound. We’ll look at descriptions of the sound and try to see how much we actually know about that. What else could be intended: articulation, dynamic flexibility? We’ll look at the use of articulation and dynamics to imitate voices. The ideal of the concertato sound. Voices and instruments joined in a perfect synthesis. How were these forces managed and utilized in music-making in the church from ca. 1550-1650.
