Pierre Lauwers Posted February 3, 2006 Share Posted February 3, 2006 Well, would I dare post this one here? It met with interest on the french forum. 20 speaking stops on two manuals/Pedal. It could be build by a british builder for a continental church. Manual I Bourdon 16' Open Diapason 8' ( large ) Open Diapason 8' (small) Stopped Diapason 8' Octave 4' Quinte 2 2/3' (a Twelfth) Doublette 2' (A Fifteenth) Mixture 3r 1 3/5'- 1 1/3'- 1' (Typical Willis I scheme) Trumpet 8' (Willis kind) Manual II (enclosed) Dulciana 8' (Classic, not stringy) Vox angelica 8' (Slightly stringy, like Mr Mander does) Zauberflöte 8' (Thynne) Dulciana 4' Traversflöte 4' (Walcker) Dulcet 2' Dulciana Mixture 3r 1 1/3'-1'- 2/3' Cornet 3r ( 18th century english)) Cornopean 8' Pedal Contrebasse 16' Soubasse 16' (emp.I) Violoncelle 8' (ext Contrebasse) Octave basse 8' (emp. Bourdon 16'I one octave higher) Bombardon 16' (Not "french", rather foundationnal) The Dulciana chorus is a transposition from larger organs by far, like H&H cathedral organs. Here it is intended as a secondary Diapason chorus, do not expect a choir of String Gambas! This second chorus is a hint higher as the first, but above all softer, like in the northern/ central german romantic organs (Schulze, Jehmlich, Ladegast...). The Full Swell is of course obtained with the Cornet, not the DM. Best wishes, Pierre Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
