Mr David Hester refers to the way that Hannay-MacAuslan and Hector Ross wrote taorluath embellishments (without the second low G) and that Frans Buisman referred to ‘silliness’ in attitudes to this. By this I assume that he, Frans Buisman, meant that the arguments that this caused were pointless as the low G was always there anyway.
It commences with the low G but is without the second low G. A ‘substitute’ low A is in the embellishment as a static gracenote, the percussive effect achieved by the D and E gracenotes. Elsewhere, in the ‘8th cutting’, there is detail which is similar to that in the taorluath with the ‘redundant’ low A but with an additional D gracenote. The use of that particular cutting might be regarded as slightly different to the use of the tuludh/taorluath?
The ’12th cutting’ relates to the ‘creanludh’, similar to our crunluath, but as in the tuludh/taorluath the second low G is not written.
