    I'm playing Bach's 1st French suite, and on bar 2 I have this ornament that looks like a Mordent, but instead of going horizontal and above the notes, it's going vertical, through the staff.

    Does anyone know what it is? I've googled "bach ornaments" and looked through wikipedia's list of ornaments too, but to no avail.

    Arpeggiated/broken chord symbol?
