 Shaking trills
Author: Arnoldstang

Hello, I am interested in a clarification of Sherman Friedland's comments in the Karl Leister thread. Mr Friedland used the words "shaking trills". I thought trill and shake to be synonymous. Is a shake an extremely rapid trill? If this is the case where is this documented? "Trills are simply not made to be shaken" This sentence falls into the same category for me. I just am not familiar with the word "shake" in this usage. The one (and only) dictionary on my shelf is the New(old now) College Encyclopedia of Music( more than a dictionary) by two Oxford University profs. Shake is listed as an old English term for trill. Under trill there is mention of an older term which is trillo (English "plain shake" ) In any case it is quite obvious I am not a scholar on ornamentation but would like to know why Mr Friedland uses the term shake the way he does. Respectfully....John Price
