Dear members, is there anyone (Nigel, perhaps?) who knows details about the Aubertin organ at Vichy? The stoplist gives the Pedal Principal, which is the only 16-foot flue in that division, as starting from F#. Nothing is being said there what that means precisely – front pipes, with the first six being inside or behind the towers or the main case? Or a rank that indeed lacks the first six notes? The latter would be rather improbable, considering the 10 2/3' + 6 2/5' and the GO’s being firmly based on a 16-foot flue. I also am under the impression that there is 16-foot tone present here (BWV 563, Vernet at Vichy, notes E, C#-D-E-F#). But the stoplist would not tell. Does anybody know anything about this? Thanks in advance, Friedrich
