Cornet de[s] Violes French
Viol Cornet English

A Cornet composed of string ranks: ranks of the Viol class according to Sumner; Irwin gives Viole d'Orchestre, Viola and Salicional as examples. Audsley mentions Viol Cornet in passing without any description; we assume it to be a synonym. Skinner gives the following example:

8, 10, 12, flat 14, 15 (no breaks)


Cornet des Violes IV, String Ensemble; Woolsey Hall, Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut, USA; Skinner 1928.

Cornet des Violes III, Solo; Northrop Auditorium, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA; Aeolian-Skinner 1932.
