A Renaissance wind instrument of the brass family, yet made of wood, with finger holes similar to those of a recorder. The cornett has a cup shaped mouthpiece and is sounded n the same manner that a brass instrument is sounded. It was developed from the horn of a cow, and always retained its curved shape. It was most popular during the late 1500's and early 1600's.
