AN ITALIAN POSITIVE ORGAN IN 17TH CENTURY STYLE MADE IN 1996
Voce Umana from c¹ 8ft
The keyboard is transposing (a¹ = 390, 415, 440 and 465Hz). The pipes are tuned with slides.
There are two foot pedals, one to bring on all the chorus stops (Tirapieno), the other to remove them, leaving the Principale.
The compass is C – c³, with an octave of pedal pulldowns (C-cº).
The organ is based on the late 17th century positive organ from Lucca, which we restored for the late Sheila Lawrence. It has been recorded on numerous occasions, mostly with His Majesty’s Sackbuts and Cornets on http://www.sfzmusic.co.uk/
