Venice has always been closely associated with the sound of cornetts and sackbuts: in its golden age, it was home to some of the best players of all time. They performed in the open air and in palaces, participated in services, and featured in festive processions. Both instruments were praised for their similarity to the human voice, while the cornetto was compared to a ray of sunshine piercing the shadows.
