Vox Humana Posted July 6, 2008 Share Posted July 6, 2008 Nineteenth-century English organs often had a Clarinet on the Great. The Father Willis I first learnt on had one and lots of others still survive. I suppose they are an evolution of the old Baroque Cremonas, but I have never understood the musical purpose of having a loud, unenclosed Clarinet. What exactly were they used for? Were they just for "giving out" psalm (and later hymn) tunes, or what? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
