The players were considered tools, instruments, for the composer to direct. In the earliest era, these players were vocalists, later the players used instruments. either way, they were told what to play- not to think for themselves. that is a more accurate description of what notation actually is used for, regarding new works.

the player's opinion is also the loudest opinion today. because there are more players than composers (conductors). hence the peanut gallery's "meh, just play."
