    Default What is this clef?

    Screenshot_20200915-230725_IMSLP.jpgIn Hexachordum Appolinis (1699 edition), there is this clef, I don't know what it is, all I know is that the notes are two spaces above compared to the treble clef. So a D on this clef would be an F on the treble clef.

    It's a position of the C clef known as the soprano clef in an earlier, now unused typeface. Thank goodness I don't have to learn that position, the alto and tenor do me just fine.....

    Quite. C clef.

    Very old style. I've seen the upside down bass clef before, but this is much smaller.

    I love the old caligraphy-type pens they used - when used properly you can get that fat/skinny thing going on, like in the time signature here.
