heva Posted May 30, 2006 Share Posted May 30, 2006 The Alkmaar Duyschot/Schnitger organ features a remarkable stop: the Principaal 22' on the pedals. As far as I know it's a fourth below normal 16' - or in fact the second overtone of the not present 64' foot. I've heard the stop at the console and found it to cause a lot of rumble but not more. Does anybody here understand what it's good for other than just some sort of a late renaissance show of to neighbouring villages (until Haarlem came along)?
