Hello Andrew,

This is by William Hine, before 1750, the title simply says Voluntary. I have read somewhere how to interpret English music written before 1750.

I'm not sure if inverted-mordent/trill were written like caesura in those days. If you look at the sample, there are turns and trill or pralls. Is there any online reference for these non-standard ornament shape ?.

Hello eby_km,

Well they are definitely keyboard ornaments. It would be helpful if you could say what the piece is and who is the composer and date? There are countless non-standard ornaments in 18c - this was well before the stage of standardization of notation. Not caesura, that much is certain.

Hello all, i'm typesetting a handwritten score found on internet, it does have several marking similar to "caesura" and "fermata + caesura" above the note itself and many youtube recordings this is played with "prall" variants for those weird markings, can someone confirm whether these are indeed "caesura" or some other ornamentation in the attached example ?.
