In view of some misconceptions concerning the reading of these ornamental symbols, a study of how to interpret them accurately seems of value. Stenographic signs of later periods are superficially similar to Baroque ornaments and are frequently used mistakenly in performing music of the Baroque. Bach's embellishments should obviously be treated according to Baroque practice.
