Methinks this thread should be placed in The Diner because it obviously has no remotely serious purpose......

Fine. Make it two contrabassoons.

I was very disappointed to see this ensemble omitted from the "favorite chamber combinations" poll.

All right, I'll add a piccolo. But no more concessions. This is important stuff.

Is kyjo the only arbiter of serious?

Methinks this "frivolous" thread has an obviously and ostentatiously serious purpose, and I, for one, approve of it thoroughly.

Two contra-bassoons and piccolo?  It's starting to sound like a Stockhausen piece.  :)

No pressure, you can always save some works for the later rounds!

I want to know what the most common substitution for contrabassoon was in the 14th century . . . .

They had sonatas in the 14th century?

Trick question.

The answer is zero. The answer is always ZERO.

Later rounds, or 15th-century canons. ;D

Indeed. I believe a point has been missed.

Did the even timpani exist in the 14th century? Not very HIP (Historically Informed Post).
Be kind to your fellow posters!!

I would think that Wallace Wafflehouse's To Bacon or not to Bacon is somewhat anachronistic in this thread.
