Ornamentation through solmization

During my pedagogical studies I became interested in the usage of historical solmization (sight singing) as a tool for learning music. My upcoming teaching projects utilize this tool, more precisely the six-syllable hexachordal variant, in teaching analysis and application of historical ornamentation examples. This can aid in reading and applying sources from the sixteenth to the early nineteenth centuries.

Below are is an ornamentation example to a Händel adagio based on Georg Philipp Telemann’s Methodical sonatas, as well as a Graun andante and allegretto ornamenteld with examples form Johann Joachim Quantz’s (1752) and Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach’s (1753) instrument treatises.
