On my little 1867 one manual Vowles I asked the organ builder to tune the Dulciana as a celeste. It beats with either the string or flute and I do not miss it as the string with box closed is plenty quiet enough for my needs. It also is not needed to acompany anything else. The added dimension of awe and wonder added by this little tweak is much appreciated and if needs be it can always be tuned back. When the whole tuning is a bit wayward on a cold day the organ sounds like one of those little instruments found at the altar end of a big French church. Marvellous for Franck’s L’Organiste or the Langlais 24 pieces.
