What evidence is there for "some partially diatonic tunings like A - B - C – D – E – F – G – A – B – c – d – f – a – d – f'""? All surviving music requires the tuning C – E – F – G – A – B – c – d – e - f - g - a - b - c' - d' - e' (with retuning of the 4th to 16th strings according to key).

Praetorius does not call an instrument angélique nor does he mention the angélique at all. The cited plate shows an instrument with a lutelike body. Its pegbox is not bent backwards, but over the soundboard, the bridge is glued diagonally on the soundboard, and 23 strings are attached like with harps. Praetorius' explanation: „Eine sonderbare Laute / wird nach Art der Harpfen tractiret“ = "A peculiar lute / being played in the way of the harp" (Michael Praetorius, Syntagma Musicum, vol. 2, suppl. Theatrum Instrumentorum seu Sciagraphia, Wolfenbüttel 1619, plate XXXVI). Mathiasroesel (talk) 09:38, 16 September 2016 (UTC)
