Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral in The Organ Posted May 22 21 hours ago, John Robinson said: I mentioned related matters on a thread on Facebook recently, asking about the loss of the Cornet, Sesquialtera and Larigot, and was assured by someone in authority at the Minster that these would not be missed. In addition, I believe that the new west shutters to the Swell box have made an enormous difference to the output in the nave. Then there is the Ophicleide extension down to 32' on the same pressure as the Tuba Mirabilis. I've only heard it on recordings so far, so what do I know?! I'm sure you know quite a lot. I think on a previous thread we mentioned this issue. Of the stops you mentioned I am surprised the Cornet was removed. This is such a versatile addition to any specification. It's also a useful 'support' for the treble reeds.
