I'm reading copies of the Austrian "Exercier-Reglement für die K. K. Cavallerie" and have come across some unfamiliar terms I'd like to clarify, so I'm wondering if the german speakers or musicians lurking here can perhaps assist.
In section 22 it deals with cavalry charges and it note that "Alle Trompeter antworten durch den zweyten Theil des Abbruches zu Pferd." I am presuming that the "Abbruches zu Pferd" are a series of cavalry trumpet calls and that this is then the second of those series of calls. Is there a specific military term in English for such trumpet calls?
Also there is mention of Ein doppelte Stösse, Zwey doppelte Stösse and Drey doppelte Stösse!. I take it these are respectively a single, double or triple call. The doppelte however is unfamiliar in that this seems to be a "double" or "dual" trumpet call. What type of call is this.
