Dulcis Latin

Mentioned only in Grove, who says: “The verbal coincidence of Dolce, Dolcan, Dulciana and Dulzian has led to much confusion; probably all terms derive from Dulcis, a stop with ‘sweet’ tone.” The Latin word dulcis means “delightful, sweet, pleasant, or agreeable”.


None known. Contributions welcome.
