Split sound

I read that there was an ideal sound e. g. at the Burgundian court, viz. every single instrument should be distinctly heard. German musicologists have come to call it Spaltklang, which would literally translate as split sound.

Q Is there an established English term for this?

Additional question: Does someone know who established the term and the notion in musicology?
