flageolet

flageolet.
1. Late 16th-cent. instr. of end-blown fl. type, with 4 finger-holes and 2 thumb-holes, ‘invented’ by Sieur de Juvigny of Paris, c.1581. The name has also been applied to earlier instr. of the end-blown fipple type of pipe. Handel wrote for the true flageolet in Rinaldo.

2. Soft organ stop of 2′ length and pitch.

3. flageolet notes is a term applied to harmonics on a str. instr., produced by light stopping of the str. at natural points of vibration, and so called because the resultant high thin sound is said to resemble that of the flageolet.

flageolet

flageolet (flăjəlĕt´), small straight flute of conical bore, with a whistle mouthpiece. The number of finger holes varies, as does the length, which may be from 4 to 12 in (10.2–30.5 cm). The flageolet, related to the recorder, was known as early as the 16th cent., its invention in 1581 being ascribed to Juvigny, a Parisian. It was in use until the end of the 19th cent.
