Cornet IV Posted February 17, 2021 Share Posted February 17, 2021 How heartening to read in this morning's Telegraph of the restoration of the Wimborne Minster organ contract going to Manders. The picture is of one Stephen Hayley with an "orchestral trumpet" but in the background, there is the instrument disporting a rank of these mounted en chamade. I find this a little curious because whilst I have known many Spanish and other 17th century organs with reeds thus mounted, I have never met a 17th century English instrument so equipped. I suspect this must be a later addition. Yes? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
