  Ornament (music) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In music, ornaments are musical flourishes that are not necessary to the overall melodic (or harmonic) line, but serve to decorate or "ornament" that line.
In the baroque period, it was common for performers to improvise ornamentation on a given melodic line.
In Spain, these ornaments were called "diferenzias", and can be traced back to the early 16th Century, when the first books with music for the guitar were produced.

The dependability and length of your pitch memory could be taken as a measurement of your musical talent and skill.
One of the characteristics of tonal melodies is that when we sing them musically, all the pitches are not perceived as being equal.
This involves pitch memory on three levels: the background of the tonic against which the scale steps are sung, and the background of the scale steps against which the neighbor notes are sung.

 Use of Vibrato in Baroque Vocal Music
The topic of performance practice in early music has produced a veritable flood of emotionally charged criticism from both sides of the proverbial "fence".
While some assert that the application of modern styles to early music only enhances the expressive quality of a piece, others argue that historical authenticity should take precedence over all other aspects of a performance.
Most specialists agree that some vibrato is a necessary element in the performance of Baroque Music; to what degree it is used, how it is used, and the width and speed of the vibrato used encompass the main part of the controversy.

ornament, in music, notes added to a melodic line for the purpose of embellishment or decoration, often called graces.

 Dolmetsch Online - Music Theory Online - Ornamentation
Ornamentation was essential to that performance and to miss it out made as much sense as leaving out any of the written notes.
The problem, for today's performer, is that ornamentation is one of those notational elements that varies from period to period and from country to country; indeed, it varied with the taste of the person writing about it.
In music written before the nineteenth century the mordent (written as a shake sign crossed by a vertical line) is a sequence of three notes (the written note, the note below and returning to the written note).

 OF - Sounding
Between ornament and music persist direct connections, which means that Ornaments are Music.
These ornaments are drawn music -- they are sound: when run through a projector, these graphic sounds broadcast tones or a hitherto unheard of purity, and thus, quite obviously, fantastic possibilities open up for the composition of music in the future.
Or, furthermore, new musical sounds are now possible, pure tones with a precision of definition in their musical vibrations that could not be obtained formerly from the manipulation of traditional instruments.

 Bach Music Manuscript Notation
This ornament consists of three parts: the prefix, the trill and the suffix or termination.
Because the last two notes of the trill combine with the termination to produce a sound exactly like the prefix, it is best to include several additional repercussions of the trill whenever the length of the note permits.
The note that is ornamented with the trill must be preceded by the note one diatonic step higher.
