Pierre Lauwers Posted May 19, 2005 Author Share Posted May 19, 2005 What about two mixtures, one with octaves and quints, the other one with tierce? Holzhay did it ("Hörnlein"), a 1910 Walcker in Belgium has a "Mixtur" and a "Scharff" (with Tierce) on the same manual. In this one, however, the Scharff is louder voiced as the mixture, I think it's intended to go with the reeds. In the flemish organ there are "Sesquialter" or "Sexquialter", with Principal scales. These stops do indeed have a Tierce rank, but are actually rather mixtures because they do have breaks. They can be added to the Diapason chorus or not, like Holzhay's Hörnlein. This kind of Sesquialter was -or is-known in Britain. Audsley too described it that way (up to five ranks, with breaks). Best wishes, Pierre Lauwers.
