Viola Fine Instruments

The viola has perhaps suffered the ups and downs of musical treatment more than any other stringed-instrument. In the late sixteenth and early seventeenth century it held much the same position in the orchestra that the 1st and 2nd violins occupy today. The violin with its higher pitch and its more exquisite tone-colour, was continually `knocking at the door, and the viola found itself servant where once it had been master.
Cecil Forsyth, Orchestration (London; Macmillan, 1914)
