This chapter examines the characteristics and performance of appoggiaturas, trills, turns, and related ornaments, or grace notes. The diverse and changing conventions governing the execution of ornaments notated by means of small notes are discussed. The continuing 19th-century use of small notes as a more convenient means of notating patterns that would otherwise be rhythmically complicated is considered. Trill beginnings and endings, and the various forms of turns as notated and performed are, also examined.

Keywords:   ornament, appoggiatura, trill, turn, grace note
