Proplem with Registration In Swedish

Recommended Posts

I have just bought a copy of "Bön" (prayer) by Jerker Leijon. The registration suggestion is "Bör spelas med romantisk registrering, gärna voix celeste el. dyl. Solostämman kan med fördel oktaveras."

 

Some of the words I can guess, but not others. Is anyone able to translate, please?

It should be played with a 'Romantic registration' (voix celeste or similar!) and the solo can played with an octave. 

 

There is a recording of the piece here:

Google Translate, for all its faults, has a pretty good stab at it, or at least the beginning; it makes heavy work of the second sentence though: 

"Should be played with romantic registration, please voix celeste el. like. The solo summit can be advantageously oktavered."

'Oktavered' or perhaps 'octavered': I think are good explanatory terms!  I expect to see them in the next edition of the OED.
