Malcolm Farr Posted February 20, 2005 Share Posted February 20, 2005 In some of his larger instruments, Cavaille-Coll included both a Prestant 4' and Octave 4' in the Grand-Orgue. The former was part of the jeux de fond, while the latter was part of the jeux de combinaison. Am I right in thinking that one of the main purposes of this arrangement was, using the ventil arrangement, to enable:- 1. the addition of the Octave (as part of the jeux de combinaison) to the fonds 8' or 16' and 8'; or alternatively 2. the addition of the jeux de combinaison to the fonds 8' and 4' or 16', 8' and 4'? In this way, one would seem to have the greatest possible flexibility at 4' pitch. Regards, Malcolm F Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
