(also bandore /banˈdɔː/)
A kind of bass lute with a scallop-shaped body and metal strings, typical of English consorts of the late 16th and 17th centuries.
- One of the commonest consorts in the Elizabethan period was the combination of treble viol or violin, flute or recorder, bass viol, lute, cittern, and bandora, for which Morley wrote his Consort Lessons in 1599.
- This is only natural, since many of the kids own a bandore or violin that they've built with their own hands.
- There are many musical instruments that are played every time the epic is recited, such as the flute, and the kumuzi - a kind of bandore made of corean pine.
