"BTW, don't "clarinet" and "clarionet" both derive from "clarino," meaning
"small trumpet" in Italian? I believe both variants have the same root. If
anyone has different info, please let me know."
Yes, Dave. That is the information I have as well. "Clarino" is the root. As
we've both acknowledged, "clarionet" was applied to the transitional shawm in
direct comparison to the timbre of the clarion trumpet.
