I suppose one is "key" and one is "clef", but as they are both cognates of "clef", which is which?

Métrica de compás

Armaduras mayores y menores

Valores rítmicos

Sostenidos y bemoles

Some months ago Eudy was teaching an introduction to music notation and used this term. I took it to mean "sustained", and called sharp "diesis". I later looked it up in her dictionary (general, not musical) and found that "diesis" and "sostenido" both mean "sharp" and "sostenuto" is what I was thinking of.

No se preocupe aún por los naturales/becuadros. Explicaremos esto cuando
lleguemos a las armaduras.

I say drop "naturales". "Becuadros" is well known, at least to me who learned the French word first, and can't be confused with anything else.

I haven't been following this thread so forgive me if I'm throwing in ignorant input, but here goes:

I learned Spanish musical terms as a result of playing in an orchestra in Spain for a year. I recall that "natural" was the word I heard being used. As for "bemoles" and "becuardros"; are they actually written that way, or is it; b-moles (round B's) and b-cuadros [cuadratos?] (square B's)?

The word for "sharp" that was used was "sostenido".
