Can anyone interpret the text on the cymbal parts in these two snippets?
The first looks something like “a l’ordin…” which I guess means “naturale”. The second one “B. de T.” (or possibly “B. de J.”) doesn’t mean anything to me.
To help read the chicken scratch, the instrument names on the first one are II Timp [i.e. two players], T. mil., T[ambour] Basque, Gr. C, Tri, Cymb, Cast[anets], Xyl, Gong, Piano.
And the second, Timp, T. mil., Tambourine, T. Basque. Gr. C., Tri, Cymb, Cast, Gong, Piano.
