Instrument/voices used in classical music

        For vocal arrangements melodic recitatives with orchestral accompaniment were favored over Secco recitatives. Solo singers began to lose some  autocratic domination over opera performance and ostentatious virtuosity was less evident.  Finally, choral ensembles were used on a much more frequent basis.  The instruments that were used in the orchestras and symphonies were flutes, oboes, clarinets, bassoon, trumpets, horns, timpani, violins, violas, cellos, and string basses.
