Prayerbook version of Psalms, instead of the Bible version, "cornet." A bass instrument like the clarionet, from German schalmeie a "reed pipe", with the compass of an octave and the tone of a bassoon, but plaintive. On the manor house walls, Leckingfield, near Beverley, Yorkshire, is the following: "A shawme maketh a swete sounde, for he tunythe the basse; It mountithe not to hye, but kepith rule and space. Yet yf it be blowne with to vehement a wynde, It makithe it to mysgoverne out of his kinde." SHEAL Ezra 10:29.
