Is it anywhere else, or just the OCJ?

Are the 8's three opens plus two flutes?

How nice to see a French Horn on the Solo. Our local foghorn has one and it's a superb stop - smoothly realistic and very useful. Why is this stop so rare?

It’s like the 1930s never went away. I’d prefer OD, Gamba, SD, Harmonic Flute, Gemshorn. Or even an undulant.

 

Of the two IV compounds on the Gt is one a Cornet or a high mixture?

It looks like it it is the same as is currently the case - Mixture IV with tierce, Fourniture IV with just quints.

Apparently, one of the "most loved stops" on the Durham Cathedral organ, is the French Horn,was told this by JBL, a few years ago  :)

When Bill Minay had St Cuthbert's Edinburgh rebuilt by Walkers in the 50's , he set French Horn on Swell 1 - he never tired of using it he said

The French Horn on the right-hand Echo Organ in Symphony Hall, Birmingham is sublime.

I'm presuming that the Manchester Cathedral organ is now up and running. Has anyone on the forum heard the instrument and able to offer any opinion? I can't see any recitals planned as yet but hoping there will be some in the near future.
