  1. Well, yes. But remember that any stop named ‘Lieblich’ is much later than Vox amabilis (according to my knowledge first stops similar to what we call today ‘Lieblich Gedackt’ are to be found under the name Gelind Gedackt or Linde Gedackt, Bavaria mid XVIII century). I don’t know much about the east-european organ building school (as probably most sources were lost during the IIWW), but it looks like wide-scale stops were then quite common. For example Baor Flet 8’ and 4’ from Jedrzejow being nothing more than an extremely wide Rohrflöte. The organ has also a very special feature – 1st of

  3. once more about multiple ranks… I’ve read your large discussion about all these ‘large’ mixture-stops having XV or more ranks and it seems like no one takes the most important example into account. - what about the famous 26x (26-fach or XXVI – NB some sources say the stop had actually 24 ranks) Mixtur of 1582-1585 Julius Antonius Friese organ at Marienkirche / Danzig (today Gdansk, Poland)? - that was probably the largest mixture ever built (as the La-Force 49fach of Weingarten organ is actually just ‘one-note-mixture’ playing on the bottom C only – know that from my own experience)
